1 Cup Butter
1 Medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
1 Tbsp Garlic
1 Can Tomatoes
3 Cup, fluid (yields 2 cups whipped) Heavy Whipping Cream
2 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp Pepper
1 Tsp Garam Masala
4 Breast, bone and skin removed Chicken Breast
2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
3 Tsp Tandoori Masala Seasoning
1 Cup White Rice


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Prepare rice as per package directions.

Melt a few tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat.

Stir in onion and garlic, and cook slowly until the onion caramelizes to a dark brown, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile melt the remaining butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat along with the tomato sauce, heavy cream, salt, cayenne pepper, and garam masala.

Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low; cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Then stir in caramelized onions.

While the sauce is simmering, toss cubed chicken breast with vegetable oil until coated, then season with tandoori masala and spread out onto a baking sheet.

Bake chicken in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 12 minutes.

Once done, add the chicken to the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve with rice.
