  • 32 oz Chicken Breast Filet, skinless
  • 0 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 0 1/4 tsp black pepper, ground
  • 3 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 2 tsp fresh garlic
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp powder curry spice blend
  • 0 1/2 tsp Ginger (Ground)
  • 0 1/2 tsp dried cilantro, leaf
  • 0 1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 0 3/4 cup Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 0 1/3 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tbsp Cilantro, fresh, chopped


  1. Cut chicken into strips and season with salt and pepper. Heat butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat until the foam from the butter subsides. Add chicken strips and cook in batches until browned, about 5 minutes per batch. Place chicken on a covered plate.
  2. Add minced or pressed garlic, cumin, curry powder, dried cilantro leaves, ginger, and red-pepper flakes (if using) to the skillet. Cook, stirring constantly until fragrant and spices are dried out and gently toasted, 1 minute. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes.
  3. Slowly add heavy cream and simmer (do not let mixture come to a boil) until heated through, 3 minutes. Add chicken and accumulated juices back to the skillet and toss in sauce. When warmed through, transfer chicken and sauce to a serving plate and garnish with fresh cilantro.
