Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 small yellow onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger root peeled and finely chopped or grated
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt divided into 1/2 tsp and 1/2 tsp
  • 1 pound chicken breast boneless and skinless, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 8 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 15 ounce can of chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup frozen peas
  • lettuce leaves for serving
  • cilantro leaves for serving
Instructions
To Prepare:
  1. Peel onion, garlic, and ginger. Cut in pieces.
  2. Combine all spices and only half of the Kosher salt (1/2 teaspoon) in a small dish.
  3. To prepare chicken breasts, I suggest slicing down the center and then crosswise to make bite size pieces.
  4. Open chickpeas, drain, and rinse and set aside. Measure 1/3 cup of frozen peas out and set on counter. Open can of tomato sauce. Pick cilantro leaves and place into a bowl. If necessary, prepare lettuce leaves for serving.
To Cook:
  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add canola oil.
  2. When oil is just hot, onion, garlic, and ginger. Cook for one minute, stirring continuously.
  3. Add curry powder, cumin, garam masala, crushed red pepper flakes and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt to pan. Stir constantly and let cook for 30 seconds until spices are fragrant.

  4. Add in chicken and mix to coat with spices.
  5. Next, add in tomato sauce. Bring to boil and lower light to a simmer.
  6. Add in chickpeas and frozen green peas. Cover and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  7. Remove lid, add in remaining 1/2 tsp of salt, stir to combine and let simmer an additional 5 to 7 minutes uncovered.
  8. Shut off heat and let cool while you clean up.
