Broiled Butter Chicken

This is a recipe that sounds too simple to be good but it really is! This recipe is for the chicken but you really need to serve it with boiled potatoes so you can drizzle the sauce over top of them. This recipe is made slightly different by almost any mennonite that makes this, some do more butter, some do less. Others don't add raisins, some do. As long as you have some butter and salt, you should have a great flavor that you can adjust to your families likings.

Broiled Butter Chicken
1 chicken, cut into pieces
1/4 - 1/2 cup butter
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper or to taste
1 cup raisins
1 cup water

Add this to a larger pot and bring to a gentle boil. Let the chicken simmer for about an hour keeping an eye on the broth. You might have to add more water towards the end but you really don't want too much in there. When the chicken is done you should have just enough broth to use as your "gravy" for the potatoes. If cooked correctly the butter and water will have slightly thickened giving you a finger licking good meal! I always serve this with cooked carrots and Party Pickles.

Now some of you might be thinking that this recipe doesn't look very appetizing, try it, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks for stopping by!
