How to make the Halal butter chicken: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Pierce the film of the tandoori Halal chicken marinade and place it in the oven for 20 minutes.
  3. While the Halal marinated chicken is being prepared in the oven, heat a large skillet or medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the oil, butter, and onions and cook onions down until lightly golden, about 3-4 minutes. Add ginger and garlic and let cook for 30 seconds, stirring so it doesn’t burn.
  4. When the Halal marinated chicken is ready, remove it from the packaging and put it on an oven tray and grill for 10 minutes. 
  5. Add the chicken, tomato paste, and spices. Cook for 5-6 minutes or until everything is cooked through.
  6. Add the heavy cream and simmer for 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  7. Serve over Basmati rice or with naan.

Serve and enjoy!
