Chicken with Onions and Tomato

A quick and easy recipe that made a great roti sandwich for my kids.

  • Chicken. I used boneless thighs but you can use with bones as well. Do not use boneless breast.
  • Onions, thickly sliced.
  • Whole tomatoes with the stems removed.
  • Any generic masala powder.
  • Turmeric.
  • Vinegar.
  • Mint Leaves.
  • Crushed Pepper.
  • Kasuri Methi.
  • Salt.
  • Oil

Combine the masala powder, turmeric, salt and vinegar. Taste and balance it. Marinate the chicken and onions in this for about 30 minutes or so.

Heat some oil. Add in the spiced up chicken and onion. Place the tomatoes on top. Sprinkle the mint leaves. Cover and let it cook on low heat for about 20-25 minutes.

Open and smash the tomatoes into the pan. The juices they release will help deglaze the pan. Add some crushed pepper and kasuri methi.

Cook on high heat till you get the consistency you like.
