Butter chicken, take 2

Oh food blogging! I miss thee but life is getting in the way. Mr A turned 4, we moved, and the school year is wrapping up. Why's didn't this post ever make it? Who knows? And what happened to my pictures? Oh well, this will be a no pic update.

Since last time's butter chicken was a mediocre success, I decided it was time to give it another try.

This time, I sautéed a whole, chopped onion in butter and olive oil. When the onions were getting translucent, I added some minced garlic.

Then I add chicken thigh meat that was cubed.

I sautéed that until the chicken was brown. Then I added curry powder and garam masala.

Next, I added a can of coconut milk and tomato paste. I stirred until the sauce was well combined and added salt to taste.

I lowered the heat for the sauce to simmer for about 5 minutes, though longer would probably have been better.

I served over spinach, green peas, and rice.

Verdict? Not as tasty as try #1, but then again, I had a cold and couldn't taste much of anything. This one was much saucier, almost too saucy. Hmmm... Not sure I prefer this stovetop recipe.
