This sounds daunting but it is simply chicken that is marinated in yogurt and has a tomato cream sauce.
- 1 cup Greek yogurt, plain
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 2 tsp. ground cumin
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1 tbsp. minced fresh ginger
- 3 tsp. salt, or to taste
- 3 boneless chicken breasts, skinless and cut in bite size pieces
- long wooden skewers (soaked in water)
Tomato Cream Sauce
- 1 tsp. butter
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tsp. ground cumin
- 2 tsp. paprika
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 can pure tomato sauce (8 oz.)
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- chopped cilantro for garnish
In a large bowl combine the yogurt, lemon juice, and all spices. Stir in the chicken and set in refrigerator, covered, for 1 hour.
Preheat grill to a high heat and lightly oil the grill grate.
Thread the chicken on the skewers and discard the marinade. Grill only until the juices run clear. This should take about 5 minutes each side.
Now to the sauce.
Melt the butter in a large heavy skillet over a medium heat. Saute the garlic for about a minute and add the seasonings. Stir in the tomato sauce and cream. Simmer on a low heat until it thickens (20 minutes approximately).
Add the grilled chicken pieces and continue simmering for another 10 minutes.
Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with the cilantro (if using). Add a crisp green salad, dinner rolls and, of course, a glass of chilled wine wine.
Oh my! YUM!
