Butter Chicken

I ran into a friend the other day.  She has been having a hard time this fall with work and kids and the infamous "work-life balance."  When work piles on extra responsibilities and the kids throw a couple curve balls at you, its really hard to keep up.

In case you could use a little comfort, I've included the recipe below.  It takes a bit of time, but you are rewarded by having 2-3 meals worth in the end.
