Chicken Tikka Masala

I love Indian food! I was very excited to find this recipe. It is so easy to make. This is going to become a regular dish at my house! It is extra delicious if you have it with naan (Indian flatbread). Find a great recipe here. Or sourdough naan here. I have made both!

1 cup Yogurt or Milk Kefir
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ginger
1 tsp black pepper
4 tsp Salt
3 Chicken Breasts, cut into pieces
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper, optional (I don't add any)

1 Tbsp Butter
1 clove Garlic, minced
2 tsp Cumin
2 tsp Paprika
1 (6 oz) can Tomato Paste
1 1/4 cup Cream

-In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, 2 tsp cumin, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, and salt. Stir in chicken, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
-Preheat oven to 350° F
-In a 9x13 pan, add your chicken mixture to butter, garlic, cumin, paprika, tomato paste, and cream. Stir.
-Cover and bake for 50-60 minutes or until chicken is cooked.

This looks wonderful! My kids are at the age now where I can branch out from peanut butter sandwiches! ; ) I will have to try this.
