    1 c. chopped onion
    2 tsp minced garlic
    2 tsp grated ginger
    1 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp ground tumeric

I use a ready cooked BBQ chicken from the grocery store in this recipe.

Melt butter in skillet. Sweat the onions in the butter. Add ingredients from garlic to black pepper and simmer with a lid on for 10 minutes. Add the chicken pieces, condensed milk, and yogurt and simmer for 5-10 minutes until chicken is warm. Add chopped cilantro at the very end. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Suggestion: serve with brown rice and Naan bread plus a green salad or steamed broccoli
