This is the Buttered Chicken that we’re all used to and is different from the Indian Butter Chicken I made more than a week ago. This is actually Buttered Fried Chicken, one of the easiest viands to prepare that’s a certified hit with Ykaie and her cousins. It’s  more of a variant of the traditional fried chicken. The only difference is that you coat it in golden butter sauce. It’s one of the recipes you can make if you’re tired of the usual fried chicken but is looking for something the kids will love.

If you eat it just after cooking, you’ll end up with still-crispy skin that is exploding with the flavors of garlic and butter plus hints of calamansi. And if you find the meat lacking in flavor, you can use it to mop the sauce that has dripped on one side of the plate.

What I do is I set aside extra butter sauce in a small bowl for dipping… and believe me, they would also love this as much as they love gravy.

  1. In my take on the world, everything is better with butter. I clicked on it assuming it would be a variety of Indian butter chicken, which you posted it wasn’t it. It’s a decadent way to fix chicken, but boy howdy does it look finger lickin’ good. Where are the napkins?
