Smokey Butter Chicken

Serves 4

These chicken tenders are sautéed in ghee or butter, then seasoned and finished with more ghee or butter and some olive oil, making them the most delicious and satisfying bites of lean protein that we’ve ever had! If you can’t find smoked paprika, traditional paprika is also tasty, a teaspoon of dried turmeric is also wonderful in this dish.
