Chicken Tikka Masala

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 4 teaspoons salt, or to taste

  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 4 long skewers

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 3 teaspoons salt, or to taste

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, black pepper, ginger, and 4 teaspoons salt. Stir in chicken, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat a grill for high heat.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade. Grill until juices run clear, about 5 minutes on each side.
  4. Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic and jalapeno for 1 minute. Season with 2 teaspoons cumin, paprika, and 3 teaspoons salt. Stir in tomato sauce and cream. Simmer on low heat until sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Add grilled chicken, and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, and garnish with fresh cilantro.
