Posting this for the same reason April posted her marinade. I'm tired of always having to look for it. This is my absolute favorite dish that I can cook. I think the recipe originally came from Rebecca Rampton.
2 chicken breasts (cooked and shredded)
1 tsp. cumin seeds (crushed)
1/4 tsp. cloves (crushed)
1 Tbsp. cilantro
1 C. canned tomato sauce
1" cubed fresh ginger (peeled and grated)
1 C. heavy cream
1 tsp. garam masala
1/4 tsp. salt
1 fresh green chili (sliced)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 stick butter
cashews (optional, I never use them)
Cook chicken breasts. Shred and set aside. Crush the cumin and cloves in a mortar (I suppose you could use already crushed, but I've never actually tried it). In a bowl, combine the tomato sauce, ginger, cream, garam masala, salt, green chili, red pepper, cilantro, lemon juice, and crushed spices.
In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add ingredients from the bowl to the hot butter. Bring to a simmer and cook over medium heat for one minute. Add chicken, stirring to coat, and cook til reheated. Top with cashews if desired. Serve over rice.
