Chicken Buttter Masala

This is one of my favourite dishes. Every month I try to make up a new dish. This month I thought that I would make a simple, yet mouth-watering dish. It's pretty easy to make. A pat of heavenly butter and a pinch of aromatic spices can change a dish so much. I even had to stop myself from eating it all up by myself. Hope you like!!
