Ok, so I gotta confess… I found some sale on… BUTTER!!! and I couldn’t resist. I bought about 6 packs of unsalted butter and 6 packs of salted butter. Each pack contained about 2 sticks… amazing!!!! So I was so happy and decided to make some butter chicken… I looked for many recipes through Internet and I found Ree‘s and I loved it. So I decided to go on with it… and of course, I modified it.
