This delicious tray-bake recipe saves on chopping and washing up but doesn’t skrimp on flavour! By roasting the chicken thighs with the bone in, the end result is incredibly moist and tender, and the butter chicken curry flavours infuse into the chicken and the vegetables. A great winter meal - or the perfect alternative to a whole turkey for Christmas dinner.
Anjum Signature

Ingredients
  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Classic Butter Chicken
  • 4 bone-in chicken thighs (with skin on)
  • 4 medium potatoes (ideally Maris pipers), chopped to a large dice
  • 1 large parsnip, peeled and chopped into 2cm chunks
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped into 2cm chunks
  • 80g of Tenderstem broccoli, sliced in half, chopped Cavolo Nero, or any other green vegetable of your choosing
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (Fan 200°/Gas Mark 6)
  2. Empty the contents of both sauce sachets from the kit into a large baking tray, mix well. 
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat, and add in the chicken thighs skin side down. Leave to cook for about five minutes, or until the skin is nicely crisped. Place these pieces of chicken into the baking tray, skin side up. 
  4. Fry the spices from the kit in the remaining chicken fat left in the pan over medium heat, and then add in your prepped vegetables (apart from the green veg of your choice). Toss well. 
  5. Pour the vegetables and spices over the chicken in the tray, and pop into the oven for 25 minutes.
  6. After the timer has elapsed, slot the green veg into the baking tray, and pop back into the oven for 5-7 minutes, or until everything is cooked through. The internal temperature of the chicken should be 75°C in the thickest part.

MADE WITH OUR DELICIOUS
Classic Butter Chicken

Where the tikka masala is the favourite British curry, Butter Chicken is the Maharaja of curries in India and features at restaurants, weddings and everywhere in between! The intense flavours of slow-cooked sweet and tangy tomatoes, garlic, ginger, yoghurt, cream and spices come together to make a heady harmony of flavours that are actually addictive. Once you start, you can’t stop especially when served with delicious hot The Spice Tailor naans!

Although our sauce is called Classic Butter “Chicken”, it is actually vegetarian and very versatile. This sauce goes so well with almost everything and definitely anything that works with tomatoes.
