I recently posted my recipe for Indian Butter Chicken with video.  The dish is Lip smacking good, and offers  an authentic recipe for special Garam Masala made for butter chicken / Tandoori Chicken.  After I posted it, I was reminded of this rather more simple recipe for Easy Butter Chicken with Nestle Cream that my sister sent me over a decade ago.

My family loves Butter Chicken so I decided to make it again. The ingredients are simplified and still results in that Yummy Butter Chicken! So for those of you looking for the easier option, here goes.
