very nice..using the paste recipe from the book as well.. Too spicy for my 9 year old.. would like to try it with thighs rather than breast...but wow the sauce is lovely

If it's too spicy for your ds, pull out some of the chicken pieces with minimal sauce and then add extra cream when you serve it. Two of my sons aged 3 and 5 always have it like this if it's a little too spicy and they looovveeee it.  My ds who's 8 eats it like we do, I think adding the cream eases them into it gently ! Saves cooking a second meal too !

Tried this the other night and it was good - I'm not a big fan of butter chicken but I did like this one.

I made both the Chicken Tikka Paste and Butter Chicken recipes tonight.  The finished dish was tasty but definitely spicier than the Butter Chicken we get in Indian restaurants here in Australia.  I used about 600 grams of chicken and there was way too much sauce for that amount of chicken.  My sauce was also quite runny so I probably should have thickened it a bit before serving. 

Here is a photo of the finished dish served with Mock Rice (cauliflower).
