  • Cut the chicken breasts into 2 inch pieces, then sprinkle the pieces evenly with 1 teaspoon of salt and the black pepper.
  • Pour the vegetable oil into a skillet over high heat. Once the oil is hot, cook the chicken until browned. Do not worry about cooking the chicken through. Brown it, then place to the side.
  • Lower heat to medium-high, then add the onion, ginger, and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until the onion turns translucent.
  • Add to the onion mix the curry powder, cayenne pepper, ground cumin, ground coriander, ground turmeric, and one tablespoon of water. Stir while heating for one minute.
  • Add in the crushed tomatoes, plain yogurt, cilantro and the last teaspoon of salt. Stir to combine.
  • Add the chicken back into the skillet, plus an additional 1/2 cup water. Stir the mix thoroughly, bring the mix to a boil, then lower heat and simmer, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes to cook the chicken through.
  • Uncover, check that the chicken is cooked through, then add the garam masala. cilantro, and lemon juice. Stir one last time, then serve over rice.
