Instant Pot Indian Butter Chicken

Instant Pot Indian Butter Chicken

Ingredients


1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 3), cut into 1-inch chunks

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

2 cloves garlic, grated

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1 15-ounce can tomato puree (about 1 1/2 cups)

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

3/4 cup heavy cream

Chopped fresh cilantro, for topping

Naan or rice, for serving

Directions


Toss the chicken with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Set aside at room temperature. Stir the garlic, ginger, garam masala, paprika, cumin, turmeric and cayenne with 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl.

Set an Instant Pot to sauté on high. When the pot registers hot, add 2 tablespoons butter and let melt. Add the spice mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and sticking to the bottom of the pot, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomato puree, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt, scraping up the bottom of the pot. Turn off the pot.

Add the chicken to the pot; stir to coat. Put on and lock the lid; make sure the steam valve is in the sealing position. Set the pot to pressure-cook on high for 5 minutes. When the time is up, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then carefully turn the steam valve to the venting position to manually release the remaining pressure. Turn off the pot and remove the lid.

Stir the remaining 4 tablespoons butter and the heavy cream into the pot; season with salt and pepper. Divide the chicken and sauce among bowls. Top with cilantro and serve with naan or rice.

Stir-Fried Udon with Chicken and Vegetables

Stir-Fried Udon with Chicken and Vegetables

Ingredients

18 to 20 ounces fresh or frozen udon noodles

1/4 cup mushroom broth

2 tablespoons sake

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

8 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breasts, sliced 1/4 inch thick

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/4 small head napa cabbage, chopped into 1 1/2-inch pieces

1 carrot, thinly sliced on an angle

3 scallions (white and green parts separated), thinly sliced

1 cup snow peas, trimmed

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook as the label directs. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water, stirring the noodles with your hands. Set aside.
  2. Mix the mushroom broth, sake, soy sauce, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large liquid measuring cup; set aside. Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat until very hot. Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and heat until shimmering. Season the chicken lightly with salt and pepper; add to the skillet and cook until browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until just cooked through, about 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to the skillet, then add the cabbage, carrot and scallion whites. Cook, stirring, until the cabbage is wilted and the carrot is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add the snow peas and garlic and stir-fry until the garlic is golden, 1 to 2 more minutes. Add the noodles and stir-fry until dry and evenly combined, about 30 seconds.
  4. Add the mushroom broth mixture and chicken to the skillet and cook, tossing, until the liquid is reduced and the noodles are coated, 1 to 2 more minutes; season with salt and pepper. Divide the noodles and vegetables among bowls and top with the scallion greens.
