Recipe: Z’Tejas Cornbread Copycat

Just 3 ingredients and you’re left with restaurant style cornbread. Honestly it couldn’t be easier or yummier!

 

Z’Tejas was one of those restaurants the musicmaker and I went to A LOT when we were dating and first married. It was yummy and their complimentary cornbread is SO good. Unfortunately they seem to continually change their menu and after finding new favorites to only find them off the menu next time we showed up the restaurant got retired from our rotation. Luckily a friend shared this great recipe that tastes like a Z’Tejas cornbread copycat to me.

 

 

 

Ingredients

  • one egg
  • one box of jiffy muffin mix
  • one can of creamed corn

Put into a pie pan (or whatever type of baking dish you prefer) and bake at 400 F for about 20-30 minutes or until browned on top and toothpick comes away clean.

So yummy and so easy. Also if you’re adventurous it looks like Z’Tejas actually has a cornbread recipe on their website but it is definitely more involved and has more ingredients.

Pressure Cooker Indian Butter Chicken Recipe

affiliate DISCLOSURE

Indian butter chicken is one of my favorite dishes. Who knew it could be so easy to recreate at home with an electric pressure cooker!

It's a keeper pressure cooker butter chicken indian curry recipe instant pot

I am definitely new to the Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker world. At first I wasn’t sure what I thought but I’m starting to love it. More recipes like this Pressure Cooker Indian Butter Chicken and I’ll be a complete convert. Right now I can say it’s growing on me and I’m committed to using it a few times a week (all 3 times last week were winners yay!).

Love this. Easy indian butter chicken recipe for pressure cooker

This Butter Chicken recipe is adapted from Pressure Cooking Today. I made enough changes to suit my cooking style and our families tastes that I thought I’d should share my tweaks but I definitely used her recipe as a starting point.

Hands down the best Instant Pot Butter Chicken Curry Recipe great weeknight dinner

Ingredients

  • 10-12 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 2.5 to 3 lbs)
  • 1 cans 28 oz diced tomatoes and juice (or I’ve also used 2 x 14.5oz cans)
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper (you can use more if you want spice this amount is flavor without spice)
  • 1 inch fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

I've made this every week since I discovered this instant pot pressure cooker indian butter chicken recipe

Directions

  1. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces (1-2 inches)
  2. Grate ginger into blender or food processor (I used my ninja), add in tomatoes and seeded jalapeno. Blend until well combined. If you don’t have a microplane you can just chop it or press it but I hate biting into ginger so I like it really small.
  3. Set your pressure cooker to saute/browning or whatever you used to do that (mine I just hit any button with the lid open) add in butter and allow to foam up.
  4. Add chicken in 2 batches flipping to just barely brown the meat. Remove and set aside in something that will preserve any juice that comes off you want that.
  5. Add cumin and paprika to the butter and stir continuously for about 20 seconds.
  6. Quickly add in tomato mixture, salt cream, yogurt, chicken and any drippings that have collected. Stir to combine everything.
  7. Close the lid and cook on for 5 minutes. Since we’ve been sauteing it shouldn’t take long to come to pressure before it starts counting the 5 minutes.
  8. Allow to natural release (basically don’t do anything after the timer goes off) for 10 minutes. Then do a quick release.
  9. Remove about 2 TBS of liquid from the pot and mix with cornstarch.
  10. Stir back into the pot along with the garam masala.
  11. Turn on saute or equivalent, bring to a boil and allow the curry to thicken to your liking.
  12. Add any additional salt according to your tastes and serve over rice or with naan or both!

we love this and make it all the time so fast great for weeknight meals butter chicken indian curry recipe

Now I don’t have an Instant Pot brand pressure cooker but it should work the same way regardless of which you have. When I bought mine I didn’t realize there was such a hype about one brand. But it has done the job fine and it’s been easy enough after the initial learning curve to “translate” instant pot recipes.

If you want to watch me cook this live and ask questions or just hang out and chat while I cook join me 1/16/2017 live on the Rae Gun Ramblings Facebook at 4 pm EST.
