Don’t you hate those nights when you don’t feel like cooking but

This easy butter chicken recipe is the solution to those nights. It’s a shortcut recipe. You’ll need a jar of Tikka Masala sauce. I really like the one Aldi sells. It costs less than two-bucks and is really flavorful. If you don’t have an Aldi near you, you can find jarred Tikka Masala sauce in most grocery stores. They vary from brand to brand but this recipe works with whatever sauce you buy.

Of course, you could simply cook some chicken, heat up the tikka masala sauce, and call it a day. There’s no problem with that approach. But…if you doctor the sauce just a bit, it makes your meal even better.

The prep time for this easy butter chicken takes about 10 minutes and, I’m not kidding here, it tastes like something you’d get from a restaurant.

The best part? You only need five ingredients. Seriously. As long as you have the sauce on hand, and keep onions in the pantry and chicken in the freezer, you can make this meal whenever. It’s faster than waiting for takeout.

All you do is toss the chicken with some curry powder and oil. Then cook a sliced onion. Add the sauce and allow it to simmer while you cook the chicken. Before serving, add some half-and-half to the sauce and, boom, dinner is done. Easy, eh?
