Yes, the chicken was superb, very soft, juicy and tasty. We will be making this a regular in our house. We were able to improve the saag aloo by adding half a teaspoon of salt, black onion seeds, cumin seeds and kashmiri chilli powder. The combination of the butter chicken and saag aloo makes a great change to rice. Great product, thank you :-)
Haven’t tried it yet , just in process of cooking it but I just wanted to say that I think it’s bad that you have to go online to find out rest of recipe, I’m lucky to have internet access but what about the people who don’t I nearly put everything in bag to cook as with most of the other Maggi bag cooks , it's only because I read all the way through the steps on packet I found out .shame as it will put me off buying other maggi packets
I really enjoyed this Butter Chicken but found the herb flavour in the dish very strong and a taste that I wouldn't normally assciate with a butter chicken dish. Nevertheless we did enjoy the dinner. Just found the name of the dish a bit misleading.
We absolutely loved this...hubby even licked his plate! Will definitely be cooking again. I diced my potatoes as instructed on packet...I naively thought I was going to cook it all together in the bag!! I started cooking my onions in a frying pan when chicken went in oven and cooked as above. I left a lid on frying pan pan over a low heat, stirring occasionally until 10 minutes before chicken was ready...then I added spinach to pan, stirred it through and replaced lid. ( I used frozen spinach thawed on defrost in microwave whilst cooking onions...find this much cheaper and less wasteful than using fresh spinach.) My potatoes were great... soft and slightly crispy on edges.
Yes. We enjoyed it verymuch, however like Susan you deffintately need to par boil potatoes first.
Like Jamie the chicken was so easy to cook in the bag but the potatoes need to be parboiled they took forever to cook.
Really liked the chicken but the instructions need to be more clear for the potato dish? The potato’s would be better par boiled before. Will make again but maybe just with rice
I did like the meal. The meat was on point. The potatoes however were abit hard. I will have to learn to leave the lid on more as they didn’t cook very well. The chicken was nice and tender and juicy and flavoursome. I am happy to try again. New pan maybe required for frying as it was sticking. Overall a great dish to try again in the future.
I don't normally do chicken like this but bought the packet by mistake. Not wanting to waste it u pushed ahead full throttle and followed the recipe for Saag Aloo. Glad i did as this was a very enjoyable meal and we will definitely be enjoying it again soon.
Made this today with the Saag Aloo. Used sweet potatoes as they cook quicker than white potatoes. I also threw in some left over cherry tomatoes with the chicken. We all absolutely loved the taste and will definitely be making this again.
Need more information on the potatos? Are the chopped? peeled? Sliced? I don't see how a hole potato is going to cook in a little oil. Im going yo have rice instead lol. But this butter chicken is lush! Had it before so yummy. Just wish I would try the hole recipe
The recipe, if you can call it that needs more information! Are the potatoes chopped, diced, cubed, pre boiled or what???? My meal was a complete flop. 😓 Not helpful.
Chicken was excellent, but saag Aloo recipe needs more details, you need add that the potatoes need boiling before going in the pan. Not helpful
Sooo good added some cauliflower pieces I had in the fridge, clean empty plates perfect.
I thought this was brilliant, had the maggi sachet in the cupboard a while, thought I'd slap it together. Saw on the recommendation to have the aloo with it, went for it, not disappointed at all. Despite the below comment you don't need water with the potatoes, just follow the instructions and cook the potatoes low and slow, I halved the potatoes then sliced' em to about half a cm thick, spot on. Just added a little paprika, pepper, garlic powder and a splash of soy to the aloo to make it a little richer otherwise go for it, it's easy, tasty and relatively clean eating.
Terrible recipe missing an important step to add water to the pan with the potatos in order to cook them properly. Frying takes an age!
Has anyone ever replaced the meat for another? For example this is a juicy butter chicken, so could i swap the chicken for lamb?
Really enjoyed this butter chicken and saag aloo was a first and fantastic alternative to rice.
