5 months, and trying various varieties of Chicken every weekend.. So just as I keep looking for new recipes for chicken on the go regularly, I also try and keep experimenting with various ingredients to create new recipes. So just like I invented Butter Chicken with a twist and Grilled chicken Jalfrezi; this one is another experiment I did over the weekend; and wow, it came out so wonderful, so rich and creamy and so yum it was finger-licking good... So another successful experiment! Yay !
