Chicken Tikka Masala
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
4 oz of tomato paste
½ cup of chopped cilantro
1 clove of garlic minced
2 teaspoons of curry powder
1 cup of 2% plain Greek yogurt or kefir
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 head of broccoli cut into florets
¼ cup of red lentils
½ cup of water
- In a plastic bag, place the chicken, tomato paste, cilantro, garlic, curry and ½ of yogurt or kefir. Seal the bag and shake well. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet at medium heat. Add the broccoli. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli starts to break down. Reduce the heat to low. Add the chicken and marinade. Cook 2-3 minutes, turning the chicken, or until it starts to brown on the edges. Add the lentils along with the water. Cover and cook 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until chicken is no longer pink and the broccoli and lentils are tender. Stir in the remainder of yogurt or kefir.
