Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 packages 10 ounces each frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
  • 1-2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoon canola or grapeseed oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons Gourmet Garden garlic paste
  • 2 tablespoons Gourmet Garden ginger paste
  • 2 3/4 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1/4 - 3/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 2 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek yogurt

Instructions

  • Place the defrosted spinach in a blender and puree until fairly smooth, using 1-2 tablespoons of water to loosen up the mixture. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat.
