Butter Chicken Bites

I’m always looking for an interesting appetizer to serve and I’ve created a popular twist on an old classic – Butter Chicken Bites! This one bite delicious Buttery Chicken goodness is the perfect thing to serve for the PERFECT game night!

I’ve taken my traditional recipe and twisted it into this delicious flavour packed morsel.



1 lb lean ground chicken

1 onion finely chopped

1 green chili finely chopped

1/2 a stick of butter

2 tbsps of tandoori powder

1/2 cup chopped coriander

1 tsp each chili powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder and pav bhaji masala

2 tbsps ginger and garlic paste

2 – 3 tbsps of tomato puree

1/2 – 1 cup whipping/heavy cream

Oil for frying



Mix the ground chicken with some tandoori masala, half the onion and green chili.

Make tiny bite size meatballs.

Heat some oil in a wok and fry the balls for a few minutes, remove from the hot oil and drain.

Heat a sauté pan, add the butter, the chopped coriander, reserved chilies, and the reserved onions till they are translucent.

Add all the powdered spices – a teaspoon each of chili powder, turmeric, cumin powder and pav bhaji masala.

Mix the tomato puree with some water and add it to the pan, followed by some cream.

Immerse the bites into the mixture, cover and cook for a few minutes.

When serving, remove the Butter Chicken bites, add a toothpick and serve the Butter Chicken sauce for dipping!
