Butter Chicken:

  1. Heat the butter and Lodi Olive Oil Ascolano in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions until they become soft and translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the ginger and garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken breast to the skillet with the cooked onions. Add the tomato paste, red curry paste and the Indian spices to the chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the chicken until it’s well coated with the onions, tomato and curry pastes and spices.
  3. Pour the coconut milk over the chicken mixture and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then set the heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Serve with your homemade naan and enjoy!
