This is an easy and authentic-tasting Indian dish that the entire family will love! Tastes great with plain basmati rice topped with a couple tablespoons of yogurt (especially if you made the chicken spicy!)

  • Stir together tomato paste and water, and pour into skillet. Stir in chicken, and cook until it has firmed and turned white, about 5 minutes. Add coconut milk, brown sugar, chile paste, cayenne pepper, turmeric, salt, and pepper.

  • Bring mixture to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and continue to simmer until the chicken is tender and no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro before serving.
