Creamy Butter Chicken

Photobucket
I got this idea adapted from this Mommy's Creamy Butter Prawns recipe. Instead of using prawns, I used chicken. The creamy sauce is just superb with deep fried chicken. The aroma of curry leaves make this dish more fragrant and savouring. You can just eat it on its own, which is "finger licking good", serve with rice or noodles.

Ingredients:
3 pcs Chicken Keel (Chicken breast meat with the middle bone attached)
One handful of curry leaves
1 tbsp butter

Coating:
1/4 cup plain flour
1/4 cup corn flour / tapioca flour
2 eggs, beaten

Seasonings:
400ml Evaporated milk
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt

Slow simmer of the milk & curry leaves

Methods:
1. Combine plain flour & corn flour in a bowl.
2. Beat up eggs in a separate bowl. Add a pinch of salt.
3. Dry chicken keel with towel.
4. Heat up oil in a deep oil. Coat chicken keel with eggs, then flour.
5. Deep fry in low fire until golden brown. Set aside & let cool.
6. Heat up butter in a non-stick pan, add curry leaves. Saute till fragrant.
7. Add in evaporated milk, simmer in low fire till milk is thicken.
8. Add in sugar and salt.
9. Chop chicken keel into big slices. Pour milk onto chicken.
10. Serve hot.

My bits of tips:
• If you prefer cheesy taste, add in a slice of cheddar cheese in the sauce.
• Fry chicken in low heat until chicken is cooked. Use a skewer to prick on the thickest part to test is the chicken is fully cooked.
• Simmer milk in low heat and stir gently so that milk will be smooth and creamy.

Just wondering if you could tell me what Chicken Keel is

Thanks,

Swiggy

Thanks Cathy.... hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Natalie...

Bits of Life 'n' Taste said...

Hi Swiggy, thanks for dropping by... basicallly Chicken Keel is the terms used in my country for the whole piece of chicken breast meats that attached on the Chicken Keel Bone. Meaning the whole chicken breast meat with the Keel Bone. They will usually pre-cut it in the hypermarket and sell it separately with label.

Not very sure what is the context use in other countries, it may vary! Hope you can figure out what is it like in your hypermarket. Attached here is some reference from the net.

Where can you get curry leaves...Asian markets? Instead of curry leaves, do you think scallions would be a good substitute?

Bits of Taste said...

Hi Anonymous! Thanks for visiting my site! Curry leave is one of the key ingredients in this dish, I believed without curry leave the dish won't have the flavourful taste & the aroma of it. You may try to find it at the Asian market. Scallion won't be a good substitute. Good luck!

Wow, thats yummy.

Gunika said...

So I stumbled upon this post and 'must try' was the word going in my mind. I did try and it came out to be super awesome. You were right how the flavour of curry leaves is absolute delight. I added lil cheese though.
