DIRECTIONS

  • First prepare all chicken and vegetables.
  • Chicken can be cut into 1" cubes.
  • Pre-cook chicken in a pan. Saute on a low to medium heat, trying not to brown chicken. Poaching chicken also works well and can give the chicken a softer and more moist texture.
  • Sweat onions in clarified butter over medium heat. When nearing translucency, add garlic and ginger. Sweat until soft, try not to brown.
  • Slowly pour in tomato sauce. Begin adding spices (cumin through cinnamon).
  • Blend spices into tomato sauce completely, slowing stirring.
  • Add half and half, bringing the sauce to a light simmer. Combine well.
  • I suggest tasting the sauce and adding salt to taste if necessary.
  • Add chicken to sauce and simmer on low for 10-15 minutes.
  • You can also add par-cooked potatoes, carrots, cauliflower or chickpeas to dish if desired.
  • Serve over warm rice.
