I can’t tolerate hunger for long. Whenever I feel hungry I ask my mother to prepare some yummy and unique dish. She usually falls short of ideas, and therefore I have suggested this page to her. She will prepare Butter Chicken this weekend from this page.

Can I use the normal chicken for the preparation of Butter Chicken instead of Skinned chicken? Actually no body wants to eat skinned chicken in my home.
