Chicken Korma

This is one of those stick to your ribs kind of dishes that is perfect for cold weather. It's a take on the Indian cream based curry called korma.

In addition to being a hearty meal, it's easy to prepare with minimal clean up, which means more time for sitting in front of the fire daydreaming about spring!


Wash and pat dry the chicken breasts. Slice into 2-inch pieces.

Place the chicken, 1 clove of garlic, half the onion, salt, cayenne pepper and yogurt in a bowl. Cover and place in the refrigerator to marinate for an hour.

Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet. Add cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, cumin and tumeric. Cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant – about 2 minutes.

Add minced garlic and remaining onion. Cook for a few minutes or until the onions are soft.

Pour the chicken and marinade into the skillet.

Add water and tomato sauce.

Simmer for 45 minutes or until the chicken is tender and cooked through.

Remove the cinnamon sticks and serve over rice with a garnish of chopped cilantro.


Time to prepare: 55 minutes.
