Easy Stove Top Tikka Masala Style Chicken

Easy Stove Top Tikka Masala Style Chicken

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 can (15 oz.) crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Lemon Extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions

Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally until the chicken begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add onion, garlic, curry powder, salt and pepper. Cook until the onion has become tender, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste and lemon extract. Bring to a low boil then reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until the sauce is hot and the chicken has cooked through. Remove from the heat and stir in the cream to finish. Serve over jasmine or white long-grain rice, if desired.

Chef's Notes:

For more spice, stir in ⅛ teaspoon cayenne or ground chipotle pepper.

To eliminate dairy, replace the heavy cream with coconut milk.
