Chicken Stew Recipe
- Cooking Time: 2 hrs
- Preparation Time: 20 mins
- Total Time: 2 hrs 20 mins
- Servings: 4 People
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 2 tsp garam masala
- 3 large chicken breasts (or can use boneless)
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 small onion finely chopped
- 4 cloves garlic chopped
- 1 tbsp finely grated ginger
- 2 tsp ground turmeric
- 1 & 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 1/2 – 3/4 tsp pepper
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup tomato purée
Heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat.
Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in to the pan. Cook until golden brown color for about 8–10 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.
To the same pot, add onion, garlic, and ginger to and cook, stirring occasionally.
Saute onion until it is soft and golden brown, about 8–10 minutes.
Add tomato paste, garam masala, cumin, turmeric, coriander, pepper and cook, stirring often, until tomato paste is beginning to darken, about 4 minutes.
Add chicken pieces, chicken broth, tomato purée, and cream to pot.
Season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until chicken is almost falling off the bone and liquid is slightly thickened, about 1 1/2 hours. If using bone-in chicken, remove chicken to a plate and carefully remove chicken from the bone and discard skin and bones. Cut or pull chicken into bite-sized pieces. Return chicken pieces to the pot.
Serve with naan, bread, appam etc. Alternately, spoon stew over some warm basmati rice.
