Having fallen in love with butter chicken, which I often enjoy at Indian restaurants, I was thrilled to find it easy to recreate at home in about half an hour. While butter is an essential ingredient, this luxurious dish’s real trademarks are hot peppers and a spicy tomato flavour beautifully balanced by cream.
Prepare chicken and sauce. Don’t stir in coriander or spinach. Wrap and refrigerate up to 1 day, or freeze up to 2 months. Reheat thawed chicken in microwave on medium or in a saucepan, stirring often, just until hot. Then stir in sauce, coriander and spinach.
