A little over a month ago my Uncle Joe gave me one of his favorite recipes. During my first trimester chicken really didn't appeal to me and made me sort of nauseous when I ate it, so I had to wait a few weeks to make the dish (that chicken aversion seems to have gone away). But when I made it it was well worth the wait. It's actually really easy to make, and I made mine without the onion and it still tasted great!
Chicken Tiki Masala
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
4 boneless chicken breast (my uncle cuts up a rotisserie from the store, I used raw chicken and cut it into strips)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 table spoon garam masala (spice from Indian store very cheap)
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 onion chopped
Pulse tomatoes in blender (keep separate)
cook or cut meat
cook onion and garlic with oil until soft
add garam masala and ginger and cook medium heat for 1 minute
add salt and pepper to taste
Serve with rice and Naan bread (I was able to find Naan at my local grocery store, although I hear it’s cheaper if you get it at an Indian store).
And now that I'm looking over the recipe again I realize I made it wrong. Oops! I somehow thought it said to use 1 cup of heavy cream. NO WONDER it wasn't very spicy!!! Hahaha! Now I feel like (an idiot and) I need to make it again the real way.
Here are some pictures of what your chicken probably won't look like (because you'll know to use only 1/4 cup of heavy cream)....
|3 large chicken breasts cut into strips - I only used 3 chicken|
breasts because they were each so big (nearly 1lb each).

|The last 2 chicken strips left. I forgot to take a picture |
before we ate - oops (again!).
