How To Make Garlic Butter Chicken | Garlic Butter Chicken Recipe
The main flavoring agents of this dish are butter and garlic. So naturally, the chicken chunks and other ingredients are mildly flavored and do not require a lot of effort. Get boneless chicken chunks and marinate them in salt, pepper, and a little bit of all-purpose flour. Fry them after some time. In a pan heat butter, add garlic, dried seasonings, and a cornflour water slurry, cook this for some time, and toss in the chicken chunks. Mix and cook until every single piece is coated with the thick and shiny butter garlic dry gravy. Take off the heat and serve.
