How to Make Drake's Favourite Butter Chicken

The rapper orders this creamy, flavoursome curry every time he's in Manchester.

Drake doesn't discriminate when it comes to food. Sure, the Canadian rapper enjoys rosé and calamari and dinners at French Laundry, but he's also not above home cooked jerk chicken and eating at The Cheesecake Factory.

It should come as no surprise then, that not only does low-key Drizzy hit up the same unfussy Indian eatery whenever he's in Manchester, but he orders the same butter chicken every time.

RECIPE: Butter Chicken

Of course, this isn't a gloopy butter chicken from any old curry house. At Zouk, the chicken breast is marinated twice in garlic, ginger, and lemon, then a yogurt and tikka paste for extra flavour and perfectly tender meat.

Lucky for you, you don't need to be a rap megastar nor even a Mancunian to eat this OVO-approved curry. We got the recipe and it's super simple to make.

What a time to be alive.
