Ingredients
  • For marinating the chicken:
  • 12 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts chopped into 1/2-3/4 inch pieces
  • 7 ounces plain 2% fat greek yogurt (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
For the sauce:
  • 15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 jalapeño seeded and diced (or 1/4 teaspoon cayenne)
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
For serving:
  • cauliflower rice
  • cilantro
Instructions
  1. Marinating the chicken: In a large bowl, add all marinade ingredients except the chicken and stir until well-mixed. Add chicken chunks and stir to coat with the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Sautéing the chicken: Heat a wide 3 quart or larger pan over medium-high heat for a few minutes until hot. Add chicken chunks and any marinade sticking to them. Saute until the chicken is cooked on the outside, a few minutes, stirring and flipping occasionally. Add jalapeño (or cayenne) and garlic to the same pan. Stir with the chicken and cook until aromatic, about a minute.
  3. Simmering the sauce: Reduce to medium heat. Add tomato sauce, heavy cream, garam masala, paprika, and salt. Mix well. Bring to a simmer. Let the sauce simmer for about 20 minutes until it thickens a bit and develops an orange color, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat as necessary to maintain a simmer.
