If your looking for an easy and inexpensive dinner tonight, look no further. Try this recipe tonight. While creating this butter chicken recipe I wanted something that was easy, inexpensive and of course tasty.
I choose chicken thighs as you can get them at a great price. The other two ingredients are just butter and cinnamon. To start, you melt the butter with the cinnamon. Then add the chicken. Lastly, cook it.
There is more to it than that. Yet, you get the idea of how simple it is.
Notes about the Recipe
Your fat grams may be different for what you actually eat. This is the case because some butter will be left in the pan.
For this recipe, a cast iron skillet will work great. As an added bonus, it’s an easy clean-up!
