I am excited to write about all things I am passionate about...and some, well, that I may not be passionate about. But all things are happening in this LIFE. And, I want to document and have accountablity to living life with intention. And so it goes...

Butter? Gotta be good.

Butter Chicken. Need I say more? I mean really. It's gotta be good. Right?

Let's take a look at what Kourtney thought of Butter Chicken tonight...

Kourtney is still working on her culinary tastes. She ended up eating her applesauce and a bite of the Butter Chicken. As for the rest of us, we agreed that Butter Chicken is as good as its name implies. I just love a one dish meal. This has your veggie (tomato sauce), meat (chicken), grain (rice), and cream (dairy--ha!). All you need to add is your fruit and you've got a well balanced dinner. Besides being well balanced, it is Y.U.M.M.O!
Butter Chicken was simple to make. You marinate the chicken breasts all day with lime juice, garlic, and seasoning. Saute your onions in butter, add the chicken and cook for a few minutes, add a can each of tomato sauce and diced tomatoes and simmer for 30 minutes while you set the table and referee the fighting from your 4 children. Once they are off playing hide and seek, make a couple of cups of rice, quickly call your hubby to see when exactly he will be home--realize it's sooner than you think, and add the cream to the simmering chicken and tomato sauce mixture. Let simmer until you hear the garage door opening.
Really very simple and really very good. But of course, we're not surprised now are we?
And to all of you out there who have as many children as I do, if it's only one grumy child at the table scowling at the meal, it is still considered a success.
Go Butter Chicken!

Thanks for making me look bad...supper on the table when your husband gets home, literally! Maybe you should start cooking Betty Crocker? :)
