POTASH TWINS CHICKEN TIKKA
1 cup basmati rice
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces Salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
- jalapeno pepper, minced 1 clove of garlic, minced
- tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons turmeric
2 teaspoons black pepper 2 teaspoons curry powder 2 teaspoons cumin
- teaspoons garam masala 2 teaspoons paprika
- cups tomato puree 1 cup heavy cream
Store-bought pizza dough, very fun and easy to cook on cast iron skillet with butter and green onion Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons plain thick yogurt, for garnish (optional) Parsley, chopped for garnish
Step 1: First, start the rice. Place the rice in a pot 2 cups of water. Season with salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to maintain a bare simmer. Cook for 20 minutes, then allow to rest (or follow ratio and cooking instructions on the package). Alternatively, use a rice cooker.
Step 2: Meanwhile, cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces, season with salt and pepper. Brown chicken on both sides in a skillet over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and reserve to a plate.
Step 3: Prep the vegetables – chop onion, jalapeno and garlic. Melt butter in the skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, jalapeno and garlic and sauté for 3 minutes, scraping to incorporate the fond from the browned chicken.
Step 4: Once cooked, add all of the spices and toast with the onions for a minute. Pour in tomato puree. Bring to a simmer, and then add the heavy cream. Simmer on low heat until sauce reduces, about 15 minutes.
Step 5: Add the chicken to the sauce and let the flavors marry for about 10 minutes. While the chicken is cooking, make the pizza dough naan.
Step 6: Season the sauce with the lemon juice. Serve over basmati rice and garnish with yogurt, if using, and parsley.
