Butter chicken

This cold front that suddenly approached us in the Cape made me crave a warm hearty meal and the crew requested my famous “Butter chicken and white rice” for supper. It’s a super easy and quick dinner idea that’s a favourite in my household and partnered with that Fair Cape Dairies sent me some lovely dairy products to put to use and create a #rationfriendly meal idea.


  • 5 Filleted chicken breast, cubed
  • 250 ml Fair Cape Dairies fresh cream
  • Butter chicken cook-in sauce
  • Olive oil to sauté cubed chicken breasts
  • 1 Onion, chopped and chillies (optional)
  • Fresh, chopped coriander for taste (optional)
  • Salt
  • You can also add potatoes or sweet potatoes to bulk up the meal


  • Sauté chicken cubes in olive oil until golden brown.
  • Add salt and any extra spices you want to add, simmer for a couple of minutes.
  • Add cook in sauce and cream and cook until sauce becomes thick in consistency.
  • Garnish with coriander for added flavour.
  • Serve with white, brown or basmati rice.

I’m no food blogger or kitchen queen these days, and I wish I took a special interest in cooking and baking when my grandmother offered to teach me. So please feel free to tweak the recipe to your taste and don’t forget to tag me in those dishes made with Fair Cape Dairies products.
