  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the chicken breasts in the hot oil and cook until browned on one side, about 3 minutes. Flip the chicken and add the onions; cook another 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, garlic salt, and water to the chicken; stir. Season with 1 1/2 teaspoon garam masala. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garam masala through the mixture. Raise heat to medium and bring mixture to a boil. Cook until the chicken no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This was so easy to make and tasted great! I cut the chicken into cubes, used about 3 tsp garam masala, used a white onion instead of green onions, and also added peas like other reviewers. Th...

Agree this is an excellent, simple and quick base alone or to add to. To enhance: suggest carrots and onions, and to enhance flavor use chicken broth instead of water and add some ginger. To k...

I added the peas, as many suggested, and my family - not particularly versed in indian food ( I was breaking them in easy) - LOVED it. Thanks!

I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe and took the advice of others to add a few peas. I served it over Jasmin rice and it was so flavorful! Will definitely make this again. Very simple to put tog...

Added peas and rice and I thought it was really easy and yummy!

I couldn't find Garam Masala at my grocery store, so ended up using a random Indian spice mix that sounded similar. Not sure how similar it was to Garam Masala. I also ended up using fire dice...

I made a few changes. Used fresh garlic and cooked on a low simmer for a couple hours. Added green onions at the very end so they didn't go to mush. Turned out pretty good for such a simple reci...
