  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) minced gingerroot
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) minced seeded jalapeno peppers
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) mild curry paste
  • 1 pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup (250 mL) chicken stock
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
  • 1 lb (454 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) garam masala

Directions

In deep skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, garlic and ginger, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add jalapeņo pepper, coriander and curry paste; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add spinach, tomato, stock and cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add chicken; cook for 7 minutes or until no longer pink inside. Stir in garam masala.

Substitution: For a milder flavour, replace the jalapeņo pepper with 1/3 cup (75 mL) finely chopped sweet green pepper.

Serve with basmati rice or flatbread and a side plate of sliced cucumber, and onion if desired, with a wedge of lemon or lime to refresh the palate and subdue the mild heat of the sauce.
