Butter Chicken Recipe - American Style


Most of the time when you look for butter chicken, it's an Indian recipe with lots and lots of curry. This is the completely un-curried Americanized version with Ritz(or any round buttery type) crackers. And lots of butter. Mmmmm...chicken and lots of butter, it's a marriage made in heaven.

It's easy to make, beats any chicken tender recipe hands down, and it's a family favorite. Skip the curry, the endless list of ingredients, the degree in Indian cooking and try this recipe instead of traditional Indian Butter Chicken. We're sure you'll be a fan.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear .
