Serves 6

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into medium dice
  • 1 cup plain yogurt, divided
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons flavorless oil, divided
  • 1 large onion, cut into medium dice
  • 2 tablespoons garam masala 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cans (15 to 16 ounces each) chickpeas, drained
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Mix chicken with 1/2 cup yogurt and the garlic; add 2 teaspoons of the oil and toss to combine. Heat a large heavy-bottomed, nonstick skillet over strong medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning only once, until well browned on both sides, about 5 minutes total. Remove chicken and add 1/2 cup of water to the skillet; stir to loosen brown bits and set aside. Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in Dutch oven or soup kettle. Add onions; sauté until soft and light brown, about 5 minutes. Add spices; stir until fragrant, a minute or so. Add tomatoes, chickpeas, coconut milk, along with the chicken and the skillet liquid. Bring to simmer, reduce heat to low and cook, partially covered, to blend flavors, about 15 minutes. Place remaining 1/2 cup of yogurt in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in some of the hot stew liquid to prevent yogurt from curdling. Stir yogurt mixture, along with cilantro, into stew. Heat through and serve.
