So good. The flavors blend together perfectly and the chicken is always tender and melt-in-your-mouth. One of my favorite Trader Joe’s frozen meals – even better than the Chicken Tikka Masala in my opinion. I eat this at least a few times a week.

YUM!! I tried this on a recommendation from a friend and it did not disappoint! I love the chicken tikka masala, but sometimes the texture of the chicken leaves something to be desired. Not so with the TJ’s Butter Chicken – everything is tasty and it’s SO easy. Often grab a couple of these to pop in the microwave for a delicious and cheap lunch at work!

I’m not really into eating frozen lunches or dinners but the Butter Chicken is my main exception at TJ’s. The meat is always so tender and I love that that sauce has a nice kick to it.

My all-time favorite Trader Joe’s meal. I eat it all the time – really tender chicken, flavorful sauce, and perfect rice.

So good!! Not a fan of frozen dinners at all, and picked this up in the frozen section because it was only 8 points on weight watchers. Very good! Definitely something that I would eat on or off a diet!

I really enjoyed this..so much more flavor than the selection from the grocery store. .I usually grab at least 4 of these if I can (sometimes they are out)

Very tasty… but maybe ease off on the red food coloring? I brushed my teeth and then started to panic because I thought I was bleeding profusely from my mouth, so there is clearly way too much in this meal. Is it really necessary?

Too hot for me!

This was my first frozen meal from Joe’s, and it was a hit.
I usually buy the national brand when it’s on sale (their retail is absurd), so this was a low-risk gamble for me.
What a revelation! The flavors were excellent, you can locate the chicken with the naked eye, there’s no odd after-taste and the serving, amazingly enough, was ample.
I love curry dishes, but the frozen meals usually have a bad price-to-serving ratio. With this meal you get 25% more food than from the national brand for about 25% less out-lay, so the price and quality justify eating them on a regular basis.
Please note, while the Butter Chicken isn’t as spicy as a Vindaloo or a Madras, it still has enough zip to keep it interesting . . .

Trader Joe’s – Butter Chicken from Canada. Always, consistently, perfect. Rice is so good, sauce has a nice little kick and chicken is tender with no fatty stuff. An Awesome Lunch and a weekly go-to.

Extremely disappointed… basmati rice tasted of mold and this is way too sweet for mahkni (butter) chicken…, had to throw mine out.

Tasty, but way too watery. It was actually the rice that was watery.
Not that bad
With Cumin rice.
