The cooking of the Far East features many aromatic spices, such as cardamom, black pepper, cumin, coriander and cloves, roasted and ground together to create Garam Masala. This seasoning blend adds the just-right, slightly exotic flavor to this easy chick
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 4 chicken breast halves, bone-in
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 large onion, cut in thin strips
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into 2-inch julienne strips
- 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection® Garlic Salt
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 teaspoons McCormick® Gourmet Collection® Garam Masala, divided
- fresh cilantro
Remove excess fat from chicken; rinse and pat dry. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute chicken, skin-side-down, 5 to 6 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn chicken; add onion. Cook and stir onions 3 to 4 minutes longer.
Add tomatoes, carrot, garlic salt and water (push carrot down into cooking liquid). Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala over all; bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally or until chicken and vegetables are tender.
Remove chicken to serving plate (cover with foil to keep warm). Add remaining garam masala to skillet mixture; bring to boil. Cook, stirring, 2-4 minutes to reduce liquid and thicken vegetable mixture. Spoon over chicken. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro. Serve with cooked rice, if desired.
