ArcticFresh Staff - May 11, 2020


  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 Onion, Minced
  • 1 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 can Tomato Sauce (15 oz)
  • 3 cups Heavy Cream
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 1/2 lb skinless, boneless Chicken Breast, cut into bite sized chunks
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 2 tbsp Tandoori Masala

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Melt 2-3 tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and garlic. Cook slowly until the onion caramelizes to a dark brown for about 15 minutes. 
  3. In another saucepan, melt the remaining butter over medium 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 the caramelized onions. 
  4. In a separate bowl, toss the cubed chicken breast with vegetable oil until coated, then season with tandoori masala and salt and spread out onto a baking sheet. 
  5. Bake chicken in preheated oven until no longer pink in the centre for about 12 minutes. Once done, add to sauce and simmer on low heat for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  6. ENJOY!
