Chicken Tikka Masala
Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast
1¼ pound(s), cut into 3/4-inch cubes
1 small, chopped
½ item(s), stemmed and seeded
3 medium clove(s), finely chopped
1 tsp, minced and peeled

- Sprinkle chicken with ¼ teaspoon salt. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of chicken and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining chicken.
