With my better half travelling around the World on Business most days of the week, trying to whip up a meal small enough for just one, can be a challenge. There is only so many days my pallete can take A Toasted Cheese Sandwich (even for dinner)😂, so Today I made my all time favourite, Chicken Malai Boti😋
Boti Is usually boneless meat from chicken thighs, here I have used Chicken Fillets Instead, My favourite bits of Chicken. And as for malai, I have opted for the store bought Fresh Cream, instead of making the Malai All from scratch.
This is an Easy and Simple Dish, and I do hope you give it a try soon.
Looking forward to all your responses on it below in comments.
