Summers are all about spending more time with family whether at home or outside, along with favorite family recipes. One such recipe is this Roasted Indian Spiced Chicken.

It’s loved by our family, friends, even work colleagues. I love to make this because it’s soooo easy and quick (that’s what we look for in summer recipes, Right?!!). 

I still remember when I used to take this Roasted Indian Spiced Chicken for an office lunch. I got compliments from each and every person who tasted it, along with recipe requests.

Now, before we go deeper into the process of making this recipe, here’s a personal note.

My Roasted Indian Spiced Chicken is actually a Modern Twist on a Traditional Indian Ghee Roasted Chicken (which was made using heaps of ghee).

We totally looooove the traditional recipe, however, due to its ghee content, we couldn’t make it as often as we wanted to until I tried making the recipe using Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil. 

It was such an amazing discovery and literally had us licking our fingers until every last drop of the dish was finished. 

So, it was made again and again using Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil, giving us the same delectable flavor every time 🙂

Many, many dinners/lunches/brunches later, here is my Roasted Indian Spiced Chicken recipe that I’m so excited to share with you.

Also, did you know these Facts regarding Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil?

  • Made with Simple Ingredients
  • Spreadable right out of the refrigerator (THIS makes it my FAV)
  • Land O’Lakes is a farmer-owned co-op

I can proudly say that Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil is not only a part of my everyday breakfast but adds so much more flavor to our lunches/dinner and even desserts, too.
