Indian Style Butter Maple Chicken

This is an incredibly flavorful twist on a classic Punjabi dish. It’s easy to prepare and holds well for leftover, so you can make plenty! Many of the same ingredients are in both the marinade and the sauce. Serve over coconut rice or roasted potatoes for a hearty and healthy meal.

1 cup plain yogurt
½ cup Butter Olive Oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1” ginger root, peeled and grated

1 tsp sriracha sauce
