♥...Crispy Butter Chicken / Ayam Mentega Rangup...♥

Best time for me and hubby to try fellow blogger's recipes, easier ones , when my finger is going through a resting pace right now. Don't have to crack my head to create new recipes for time being..haha! This recipe is sure a keeper for me. Knew it's gonna be awesome when I saw it at dear friend, Diana's space and also at few other blogs. A hassle free preparation, and a quick one. Sis Diana, allow me to translate the recipe here for easy reference by all ya. I added green chillies and chilli sauce to the gravy to give more spicier look and taste. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe, my kinda favourite! And, since I used whole chicken part with bones, I tripled the ingredients.   CRISPY BUTTER CHICKEN / AYAM MENTEGA RANGUP Original recipe by : Diana@SkyBlue's Kitchen Includes my additions. Please double the ingredients if using whole chicken :) Ingredients :~ 2 chicken breast steaks ~ sliced ( I used whole chicken, cut into smaller
