Trader Joe's Taste Test: Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice
On our last grocery run, we picked up this fairly new item - Trader Joe's Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice - lured by the "Authentic Indian Recipe" stamp on the packaging and the siren sound of $2.99. We're inclined to believe that bit about authenticity, as after four microwave minutes, the Weekly's lunch room smelled like an Indian restaurant. The sauce was spicy but not overly so, and the chicken juicy but the portion on the small side (fair enough for $2.99). At 270 calories a serving we are moved to put it in rotation.
