http://clawsonlive.blogspot.com/2010/02/home-run.html When I told my sister I was making a recipe from her friends blog she said it would definitely be good and boy she was right! This is delicious and will be a permanent family favorite. Due to some time restraints I made it in the crock pot and it was delicious.
Butter Chicken (AKA Manna From Heaven)
from The Pioneer Woman (I changed just a few little things)
8 pieces Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
5 cloves Garlic, Minced
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoons Black Pepper
1 teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
1/2 teaspoons Ground Coriander
1/2 teaspoons Cumin
1/2 teaspoons Cardamom
1/2 teaspoon Garam Masala (Indian spice- if you don't have it leave it out.)
1 whole Lime, Juiced
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 whole Onion, Diced
¼ cups Butter
1 can (14.5 Oz. Can) Tomato Sauce
1 can (14.5 Oz. Can) Petite Diced Tomatoes
1/4 c. sugar
1 cup Whipping Cream
1 bunch Chopped Cilantro, to taste
Rice any kind you like.
Combine first 11 ingredients in a large ziploc, squish around until everything is even and marinate overnight.
Saute the onion in the butter until soft. Add marinated chicken and cook about 10 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Cook for 30 minutes over medium-low heat with the lid on. Add the whipping cream (I've read you can use yogurt or half and half too.) and cilantro just before serving over rice.
(add the sugar at the end)
