Creamy Cheesy Chicken

A simple chicken recipe that will be a BIG hit with the kids.

  • Chicken, 500 grams.
  • One onion, finely diced.
  • 4-5 tomatoes, peeled and finely diced.
  • Cream Cheese, 1 heaped tablespoon.
  • Red chilly powder, 1 teaspoon.
  • Coriander powder, 1 teaspoon.
  • Garam Masala, as per preference.
  • Turmeric powder.
  • Kasuri Methi.
  • Salt
  • Oil.

Rub the chilly powder, turmeric, coriander powder and salt on the chicken. Heat oil in a pan and when its hot, add the chicken and saute it. It must get browned but not fully cooked. Remove and keep aside.

In the same oil, saute the onion. If needed add a little more oil. When the onions are just crossing the translucent phase, add the tomatoes. Cook on medium heat till everything turns very mushy. Add in the garam masala. Add the chicken along with its accumulated juices.

Cook covered for about 10 minutes on low heat. Open and check the consistency. Check and balance the salt. Add a dollop of cream cheese. Mix well. It will quickly melt into the gravy and make it very rich and nice.

Add kasuri methi or coriander.
