Xiao’s Creamy Butter Chicken | Asian Style Recipe

The best Butter Chicken Recipe by Xiao’s Kitchen

Welcome to Xiao’s Kitchen. My name is Xiao Wei and my goal is to make your cooking simple and exciting. Ever since my Mother showed me how to cook at an early age, I have always had a strong passion for cooking. My family still live in Inner Mongolia, in the northern part of China, where I visit each year and learn new Chinese recipes.
