  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 2 lbs chicken breast
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1 cup tomato sauce sugar-free
  • 1 tsp salt or more to taste
  • 1 tsp pepper or more to taste

Serving Suggestion


  • Heat a pan over medium heat and melt about two tablespoons of butter.
  • Fry the onion, garlic and fresh ginger in butter for about 2-3 minutes until it becomes translucent.
  • Meanwhile cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  • Add the chicken over the cooked onion and cook it for about 5 minutes, constantly stirring as shown in the video.
  • Once the chicken looks almost cooked add the seasonings: Garam masala, chili powder, salt, and pepper to taste.
  • Stir in the tomato sauce and heavy whipping cream. Let it simmer for 15 minutes or until it reaches desired consistency and the chicken is thoroughly cooked. 


Don't substitute the butter with coconut oil, it won't taste the same. If possible use grass-fed butter.
