Filed under: Chicken,Main Dish — Carrie @ 7:50 pm

Serves six

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken
Lemon juice

Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Put in baking dish, sprinkle with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Bake at 350F until done (about 20 minutes).

*I have also used shredded rotisserie chicken and it works well.


1 large can tomato sauce
1 small can tomato paste
1 cup water
1 T. graham marsala (on the spice aisle)
1 T. minced garlic
1 T. butter
1 t. ginger
1 small dash cayenne pepper (more if you like it spicy)
2-3 T. honey
1 cup cream

Melt the butter in a big pot. Add in the graham marsala and garlic and brown it. Add in the rest of the ingredients except the cream. Put in the chicken, boil it up for a while, then remove from heat and stir in the cream.

*I’ve also made this in the crockpot and it has worked well.

I like to serve it with Jasmine rice and naan bread from Giant. I also serve it with sour cream because I am too lazy to make the proper Indian sauce.
