Chicken is such a versatile bird; it enters our life with the intent to make it easier, comforting and at the same time delicious with as little effort as possible.
How can you not love and respect such an offering…
So many ways to enjoy chicken and here is my recipe for Greek Butter chicken.
I like to serve rice, and a green salad with Butter chicken.
I usually cook with olive oil but the smooth aroma and flavor of butter is soothing and I have to give it to the French, the ultimate lovers of butter…In the planet…
I also believe that the simple recipes will remain our favorite ones and they will be adopted, just like this Butter chicken recipe. They are so easy to make and they need ingredients that we have available in our pantry..

Brussels sprouts and the love hate relationship.Not too many people like them nevermind love them.
They take such a bad rap, and they are so healthy, packed with so much flavor and taste.
Many people want to have them because they are so cute clustered together like a giant grape and they know how good
they are, but when it comes to the taste they automatically lose interest.
Here is the way I make them and paradoxically are liked, even the pickiest eaters like them.
