If you like going out to Indian restaurants often, then this is the recipe is for you! The chicken is super tender, and you guys are gonna love it!

We love Indian cuisine because it’s so beautiful with all the bright colors, and it is so flavorful with all the spices that go into a dish!

The Chicken:

The Chicken in this dish so tender, juicy and so flavorful from the curry paste! Even without the sauce it’s amazing!

Recipe Overview:

Chicken Thighs: We like using chicken thighs, but you can also use chicken breasts.

Tomato Sauce: We used canned tomato sauce.

Yogurt: Whole Milk Yogurt works best.

Heavy Cream: This makes the Chicken creamy. If you want it a bit lighter, you can use coconut cream.

Whole Milk Yogurt: We used greek yogurt.

Onion: We used a yellow onion.

Ginger: Just a nob of fresh ginger adds tons of flavor to the curry.

Garlic: Let’s just be honest, no savory recipe can ever be without garlic!

Garam Masala: Garam Masala is basically a mix of spices. You can make your own if you don’t have it.

Paprika: Adds Color, and some flavor.

Tumeric: Like paprika, also adds color and flavor.

Salt: This ingredient is pretty basic, and adds flavor.
