Classic Butter Chicken

Serves 4

Trust us when we say, this one will be a family favourite! Inspired by the traditional Indian Butter Chicken, we endeavored to replicated the authentic taste whilst re-creating our own gut friendly version, because we believe your IBS shouldn’t mean you have to miss out on curry!

This recipe is a mild gut friendly version of a Butter Chicken curry. It is rich in flavour, deliciously creamy and of course, gut friendly!
