30 MINUTE MEALS: Indian Inspired Butter Chicken

So I am all about quick and easy meals. I work full time and I am full time student. I am not a firm believer in fast and processed food. I try to provide healthy meals for my son and I as much as possible.


My coworker told me about this amazing butter chicken sauce. She said it not spicy and taste so authentic. I was a little skeptical because if you have had Indian food it can be pretty darn spicy and I don’t need that much fire in my life.


Anywho I ran across the sauce and decided to give it a try and YESSS GAWD I am glad that I did because it’s AMAZING. I made a light tasting rice and just roasted the veggies, since the butter chicken has a lot of flavor. I didn’t want to have too many flavor profiles on the plate. So I just decided to share my 30 minute with your guys.
