It’s Buttery Delicious!

This Buttery Delicious Pressure Cooked Chicken dish is so good, you won’t believe you made it so quickly and easily. First things first, in case you were wondering, this IS NOT Butter Chicken. I have never cooked actual Butter Chicken but it’s on my list of recipes to try. If you are looking for an Instant Pot Butter Chicken Recipe, I have heard rave reviews about this one at! 

This simple recipe uses butter instead of oil to brown the vegetable and chicken. The butter combined with the wine, develops into a really delicious gravy to serve over potatoes or rice.

A Simple and Inexpensive Meal

Using BOGO chicken thighs and legs, this dish was really inexpensive. Four servings for about $2.50 total. Total people! That’s .63 cents per serving! Now I know I got this chicken buy one get one, but even if I’d paid full price it would have been $1.25 per serving. And to be fair, that’s just the chicken I’m talking about and not all the other ingredients.

But if you add the cost of some rice and vegetables, butter and spices, it might add up to $10 for the whole meal. That’s on the high side, because you probably already have all the spices, butter and some rice in the pantry. Anyway you look at it, it’s an economical, yet really easy and delicious entree.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do! As always, please let me know if you have any questions or comments!!
