Crispy Butter Chicken

This is an easy recipe to make on weeknights or when you don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. Crunchy, crispy and with a rich taste you’d swear comes from a fancy restaurant, butter chicken is sure to be one of your new favorite recipes.

The thing I love about this recipe is the quick and easy dinner it makes. We keep the cracker crumbs ready ahead of time. If you want to crush a box of Ritz crackers ahead of time and keep them in your pantry, this recipe will take you less time to prepare than it takes for your oven to heat up!
