007 – Cleaned Up Butter Chicken w/Mushroom & Spinach

007 - Cleaned Up Butter Chicken


“Never going to taste as good as the real thing, especially since cheese/garlic naan is definitely out if you are eating healthy but still a pretty good alternative. I’ve made versions of this before that are so/so but tonight I threw random things in and it tasted better than ever. If in doubt, fluke it!”

Servings: 6


  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Brown Onion (I used a Spanish Onion but I’m color blind – Brown would taste better)
  • 1 Tomato (2-3 if you don’t want to use tomato paste)
  • Couple tbsps. of Tomato Paste
  • 6-8 Mushrooms
  • Spinach (I forgot the Spinach)
  • Rice (I skim read an article once saying there is very little difference between Brown and White rice but go Brown if that’s your thing)
  • 1 Can Organic Coconut Cream
  • Butter
  • Paprika, Tumeric, Garam Masala, Cumin, Ginger, Garlic (2-3 cloves) & Chilli


  1. Put your rice in the steamer. I always forget to cook the god damn rice and sit there mucking around at the end while my food goes cold. Don’t be like me.
  2. Dice tomato, mushroom and onion.
  3. Heat the pan, add 1 tbsp. of butter and then add diced tomato.
  4. After a few minutes add the onion and cook on a low heat until soft.
  5. Cut the chicken into cubes. Size is up to your personal preference. I’m fair lazy so we usually have big cubes.
  6. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 mins.
  7. Add the chicken into the pan and cook until outside is sealed.
  8. Reduce the heat and add coconut cream. Bring the mixture to a low simmer.
  9. Add spinach, 1 tbsp. of butter and spices to taste. If you need help with that ask ya mum (or just use 1-2 tbsps. of each).
  10. If you forgot to get enough tomatoes like i did now would be a good time to add the tomato paste.
  11. Simmer for 5-10mins stirring occasionally.
  12. Serve. I normally have enough left over for a couple lunches for me and the missus.
