How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • Melt a few tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Stir in onion and garlic, and cook slowly until the onion caramelizes to a dark brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile melt the remaining butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat along with the tomato sauce, heavy cream, salt, cayenne pepper, and garam masala.
  • Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low; cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Then stir in caramelized onions. While the sauce is simmering, toss cubed chicken breast with vegetable oil until coated, then season with tandoori masala and spread out onto a baking sheet.
  • Bake chicken in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 12 minutes.
  • Once done, add the chicken to the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes before serving.

    Very tasty - smells wonderful. We didn't have any cream, so used sour cream. Will definitely try this again!

    Perfect timing - I just ate this for the first time a couple weeks ago, when my daughter said I HAD to try it...HOOKED! That was some of the best sauce I ever tasted, so I am really looking forward to giving your recipe a spin. Thanks!
