tablespoons vegetable oil
medium onion, thinly sliced
tablespoons finely chopped fresh gingerroot
cloves garlic, finely chopped
can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic fire roasted crushed tomatoes, undrained
cup heavy whipping cream
cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
In large bowl, mix 1 teaspoon of the garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the red pepper. Add chicken; toss to coat.
In 12-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Remove chicken to bowl; cover to keep warm.
Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to skillet. Add cinnamon stick and remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala. Cook and stir about 1 minute. Add onion; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until softened. Add gingerroot, garlic and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add tomatoes; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 10 minutes.
Add chicken and whipping cream. Return to simmering; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened and chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove and discard cinnamon stick. Garnish with fresh cilantro; serve with white rice, if desired.
