    Quick, easy, and very enjoyable. Lacking mustard oil, I used canola oil plus a little wasabi paste. The sauce was less creamy than some versions of butter chicken, but the butter flavor was there. I stirred in an extra tablespoon of cream. I just cooked 6 large thighs and there was enough sauce without being super saucy.

    Lovely dish. We made with the spiced layered flatbread.

    Really great tasting butter chicken sauce. The proportion of sauce to chicken is a bit off. I would double the curry ingredients next time. Definitely will make again
