Eaten! Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala (modified from a recipe on


4 boneless chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces
3/4 cup yogurt
1 cup heavy cream
1 (6 ounce) can of tomato paste
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 green bell pepper chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine the ingredients and mix well until blended. Then pour into a baking pan and bake at 350 for about 55-60 minutes. Stir before serving.

**The original recipe I had been using called for 1/2 jalapeno pepper, which I left out now for the sake of the kiddos. It also asked for a 12 oz can of tomato paste - hubby prefers it this way, but I think it's too tomato-y. I made this with 1 cup of yogurt, per the original recipe, but it was a bit tangy so I've scaled it back to 3/4 in the posted recipe.
