  • 1 lb. (450 g) boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) margarine, divided
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp. (7 mL) garam masala
  • 1 tsp. (5 mL) finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 can (398 g) no salt added tomato sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) Knorr® Concentrated Chicken Bouillon
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) water
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) 10% half and half cream

  1. Season chicken, if desired, with salt and pepper. Melt 1 Tbsp (15 mL) margarine in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken, in batches if necessary, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.

  2. Add onion to same skillet and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in garam masala, ginger and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomato sauce, Knorr® Concentrated Chicken Bouillon and 1/2 cup (125 mL) water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in half and half cream and cook until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add chicken and cook until thoroughly cooked, about 2 minutes. Serve, if desired, sprinkled with chopped cilantro.
