Indian Tomato Chicken

Recipe by: SHECOOKS2

"Chicken pieces coated with many fragrant spices like turmeric, cardamom and cloves, then simmered in a tomato sauce. This dish is a family favorite. I have also taken it to potlucks and served it to guests in my home. Everyone asks for the recipe. It is a great slow cooker meal, too.


1 large onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 slice fresh ginger root
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 (1 inch) piece cinnamon stick
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 bay leaves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 skinless chicken thighs
1 (14.5 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, crushed

  • Place onion, garlic and ginger in a food processor and process into a paste. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add onion paste and saute, stirring continuously, for about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the cumin, turmeric, salt, pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, bay leaves and nutmeg. Saute, stirring, for 1 to 2 minutes. Place chicken pieces in skillet and stir them around with the spice mixture until they are well coated.
  • Saute for another 4 minutes, then pour in the tomatoes with liquid and stir. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 to 2 hours, or until the oil has separated from the liquid. Stir occasionally. (Note: If you simmer uncovered, the sauce will thicken; add water, or keep covered while simmering.
