BChickPopcornH4Butter Chicken needs no introduction and in this recipe all the delicious flavours are captured and harnessed and used to flavour some crunchy popcorn. Perfect snack for any occasion and a guaranteed crowd pleaser. This episode is all about women empowerment and is dedicated to Lily Singh aka IISuperwomanII Lily Singh is well admired for her work on YouTube. She’s an inspiration to many people who now have the courage to take the bull by the horns and follow their dreams. I’ve heard through the grapevine that her favorite thing to eat is popcorn and I can’t imagine that she doesn’t love Butter Chicken. Both those things together are a powerhouse of flavour.

This month we’re celebrating wordy women and women empowerment and I don’t need to look further than my Markham neighbourhood, home to Lily Singh aka Superwoman, before she moved to LA. I admire Lily for her strength, determination and just for being so god damn funny. I hear through the grapevine, that her favourite snack is popcorn and today we’re going to create Butter Chicken Popcorn. Now who doesn’t love butter chicken right? This recipe isn’t about just throwing some spices on popcorn and calling it a day, I’m gonna infuse all the flavours of a traditional butter Chicken into a melted butter to pour over freshly popped corn.
