Elevate Your Classic Butter Chicken with Beautiful Seasonings

I am thrilled to share a delightful twist on a beloved classic—Butter Chicken. Known for its rich, creamy sauce and tender chicken, this dish is a staple in many households. However, we're taking it up a notch by incorporating our unique seasoning blends to create three distinct variations that will tantalize your taste buds and add a new dimension to your cooking.


Butter Chicken, with its velvety tomato-based sauce, is already a crowd-pleaser, but by introducing different spice profiles, we can transform this familiar favorite into something extraordinary. I've selected three of our exceptional blends—Garam Masala - Northern, Persian, and Golden Sunset to show how versatile and exciting Butter Chicken can be.


Why These Seasonings?

Garam Masala - Northern: This blend is a quintessential part of Indian cuisine, featuring warm spices like cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and cumin. It enhances the creamy tomato sauce of Butter Chicken, adding aromatic and slightly sweet notes that complement the richness of the dish perfectly.

Persian: Infused with ingredients like saffron, turmeric, and dried lime, our Persian blend introduces a fragrant and slightly citrusy twist to the Butter Chicken. The saffron adds an earthy depth, while the turmeric and dried lime balance the creamy sauce, making each bite a burst of exotic flavors.

Golden Sunset: Bringing a smoky and earthy flavor profile, this blend includes garlic, paprika, and other spices that elevate the savory aspects of Butter Chicken. The subtle smokiness and rich spices create a robust and layered taste experience that pairs wonderfully with the buttery sauce.


Whether you're a seasoned cook or a home chef looking to experiment, these recipes will inspire you to get creative in the kitchen. Let's dive in and discover how these unique seasonings can transform your Butter Chicken into a culinary masterpiece!


Butter Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers (or any buttery crackers)

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. Pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness.

  3. In a shallow dish, mix the crushed crackers, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

  4. Dip each chicken breast in the melted butter, then coat with the cracker mixture, pressing gently to adhere.

  5. Place the chicken breasts in a greased baking dish.

  6. Drizzle any remaining butter over the chicken.

  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is golden and crispy.


Seasoning Options:


Option 1: Garam Masala - Northern

Reasoning: This blend contains a mix of warm spices like cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and cumin, which enhance the rich and creamy tomato sauce of the butter chicken. The subtle sweetness and spiciness of garam masala create a perfect harmony with the buttery, tomato-based gravy, making the dish more aromatic and flavorful.

Modification:

  • Replace garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika with 1 tablespoon of Garam Masala - Northern.

  • Follow the rest of the recipe as is.


Option 2: Persian

Reasoning: This blend can include ingredients like saffron, turmeric, and dried lime, which can add a fragrant and slightly citrusy note to the dish. The saffron will enhance the color and add a subtle earthy flavor, while the turmeric complements the creaminess. The dried lime adds a hint of tanginess that can balance the richness of the butter and cream, making the overall dish more balanced and exciting.

Modification:

  • Replace garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika with 1 tablespoon of Persian.

  • Follow the rest of the recipe as is.


Option 3: Golden Sunset

Reasoning: This seasoning blend brings a slightly smoky and earthy flavor that pairs well with the creamy tomato sauce. The inclusion of garlic and paprika enhances the savory profile of the dish, making the butter chicken more robust and layered in flavor. This seasoning can provide a subtle smokiness that complements the buttery richness perfectly.

Modification:

  • Replace garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika with 1 tablespoon of Golden Sunset.

  • Follow the rest of the recipe as is.

These modifications will enhance the base butter chicken recipe with unique flavors from your extensive seasoning collection, offering new and exciting variations to a classic dish
