  1. Remove excess fat from chicken; rinse and pat dry. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute chicken, skin-side-down, 5 to 6 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn chicken; add onion. Cook and stir onions 3 to 4 minutes longer.
  2. Add tomatoes, carrot, garlic salt and water (push carrot down into cooking liquid). Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala over all; bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally or until chicken and vegetables are tender.
  3. Remove chicken to serving plate (cover with foil to keep warm). Add remaining garam masala to skillet mixture; bring to boil. Cook, stirring, 2-4 minutes to reduce liquid and thicken vegetable mixture. Spoon over chicken. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro. Serve with cooked rice, if desired.

My company really enjoyed this recipe. The only suggestion is maybe add more vegetables than what is called for as everyone liked the sauce but there wasn't that much to go around.

This was pretty good..a three star on my rating scale. I went with a few minor substitutions. I only had canned stewed tomatoes so I used those instead of fresh. I also added some zucchini that I needed to use up. If I make it again I will probably use chicken thighs. White meat seems to dry out when cooked for a long time. Otherwise not bad for a quick easy meal!

I thought this dish was delicious. My husband said he would teek it next time but he tweeks every recipe. It was very easy to prepare, very tasty and I felt healthy with the carrot and tomato. I made some taboulleh to go with it.

Really loved this recipe. I like a lot of veggies, so I added some sweet potato and sliced peppers, used a can of diced tomatoes (for the chopped tomatoes) and added some extra water. Served it with couscous and it was perfect! Next time I'll add some cauliflower.

easy to make - lacks some flavor, but captures a nice Indian flavor without the hot spices

I made this recipe for my family and they all loved it, even my teenage daughter. I will make it in the future when I have special guests for dinner.

Like most "Indian style" recipes I've tried here, this dish lacked a real authentic taste. However, with a few changes (more spices, doubling the sauce, a pinch of brown sugar), it turned out to be a quick and different weeknight fix. Will probably make again.
