Chinese-Style Butter Chicken

chinese-style-butter-chicken

The creamy sauce, together with the aroma of curry leaves, is very appetizing, whether you cook chicken, fish or crabs with it. You can marinate the chicken pieces and cook the sauce well in advance and keep it refrigerated. Just before meal time, deep fry the chicken and toss it in the heated sauce. If you find the sauce too thick, dilute with more milk or water.
