A thick, creamy classic, this butter chicken recipe is made with our signature curry paste to add a mouth-watering, chargrilled aroma. It’s the perfect dish for those looking for mild Indian food that bursts with flavour. Once grilled to perfection, serve with warm naan.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1.5” cubes
  • 1 red pepper, cut into 1” pieces
  • ½ red onion, cut into 0.5” pieces
  • Olive (to grease grill)
  • ¼ cup Patak’s® Butter Chicken Spice Paste
  • 2 packages naan
  • ¼ cup Patak’s® Lime Pickle
  • 12 sprigs fresh cilantro
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat BBQ to medium-high heat.
  2. Alternate threading chicken, red peppers and red onions onto 4 metal or presoaked wooden skewers. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place skewers on lightly oiled grill and cook for 2 min.
  4. Turn and baste the cooked side with the Patak’s® Butter Chicken Spice Paste.
  5. Cook, turning and basting as necessary, until the chicken is well done and the vegetables are soft, about 10 min.
  6. Just before serving, warm the naan on the grill for about 1 min on each side, turning once.
  7. To serve, place 1 skewer in the centre of each naan. Fold the naan over the fillings and carefully remove the skewer.
  8. Garnish with Patak’s® Lime Pickle and a sprig of coriander.
