    Hi Meghna ! This is in response to your question regarding the quantity of chicken in the recipe of Butter Garlic Chicken. It is Half a kg of chicken and the ingredients are exactly as per this quantity only. regards Sumita


    I just wanted to know if it is supposed to be 1/2 kg dressed chicken or 1/2 dressed chicken, because the ingredients sounded more like for 1/2 dressed chicken. Can you please clear my confusion? Thanks!


    I tried it and found it to be extremely delicious. My kids just loved it as it was very different from the regular chicken preparations. Please add it in the hot favourite list.


    This seems like a nice and simple recipe. Thank you.
