Recipe Ingredients for Indian Chicken Curry

2 pounds boneless chicken breast halves
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 large white onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger powder
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon water
15 ounce crushed tomatoes
1 cup fat free yogurt
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
8 oz of white mushrooms

Recipe Directions for Indian Chicken Curry

  1. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with 2 teaspoons salt.

  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat; partially cook the chicken in the hot oil in batches until completely browned. Transfer the browned chicken breasts to a plate and set aside.

  3. Reduce the heat under the skillet to medium-high; add the onion, garlic, and ginger to the oil remaining in the skillet and cook and stir until the onion turns translucent, about 8 minutes. Stir the curry powder, cumin, turmeric, coriander, cayenne, mushrooms, and 1 tablespoon of water into the onion mixture; allow to heat together for about 1 minute while stirring. Mix the tomatoes, yogurt, 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, and 1 teaspoon salt into the mixture. Return the chicken breast to the skillet along with any juices on the plate. Pour 1/2 cup water into the mixture; bring to a boil, turning the chicken to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle the garam masala and 1 tablespoon cilantro over the chicken.

  4. Cover the skillet and simmer until the chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Sprinkle with lemon juice to serve.
