GF Chicken Masala

We have recently started to explore Indian food and have found we LOVE it!  I wanted to try to make some at home and here was my first try.  Indian food is often naturally gluten free so it is a great cuisine to add variety to your menu.

GF Chicken Masala

1 1/2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1″ cubes

Marinade:

1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 1″ piece ginger, peeled and minced
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp red pepper
2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt

Sauce:
1 Tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, minced and de-seeded
2 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz tomato sauce
1 cup whipping cream

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped, for garnish

Place chicken on skewers.  Pour and spread marinade on top of chicken.  Leave to marinate for 1 hour.

For sauce, melt butter over medium heat and then add garlic and jalapeno.  Cook for 1 minute and then add coriander, cumin, paprika, garam masala, salt, and tomato sauce.  Mix thoroughly and allow to simmer on low for 15 minutes.  Stir in cream and simmer to thicken for a few minutes.

Broil chicken on skewers, turning once, until no longer pink, about 10 minutes.   Then, remove chicken from skewers and add to the sauce.

Serve over rice and garnish with cilantro.
