  • 8 oz skinless boneless chicken thigh medium, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter diced
  • 5.3 oz yellow onion 1 medium
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup unsalted chicken broth
  • 6 oz uncooked short-grain rice

For the marinade

  • 2 tbsp Hunt's tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 3 tsp garlic
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1.6 oz almonds
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

For garnish

  • 1 oz cashews
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp parsley minced
  • 1 jalapeƱo sliced


  • Put all marinade ingredients in a food processor, turn on at high speed to puree them until completely smooth.
  • In a large bowl, mix the marinade with the chicken and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, covered with cling film. If you use uncooked rice, now is the time to start cooking it.
  • Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and butter, and stir until the butter melts. SauteĆ© the chopped onions for 4 minutes until caramelized.
  • Add the chicken thigh to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Pour in the chicken stock and scrape the bottom of the skillet to get all of the flavors fused within the sauce. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Pour in heavy cream and keep stirring for another minute so the chicken absorbs the juice perfectly. Turn off the heat.
  • Serve with hot cooked rice.
