Spinach & Chicken w/ Rogan Josh Mix

I was in the mood for Spinach and Chicken tonight (along with my daughter) but I didn't want the same flavor as usual, so I tried for something different. I still have some spice mixes from Penzey's that I needed to try and although I was cooking with chicken I decided to try the Rogan Josh mix. It actually turned out really good! I also used Penzey's Garam Masala which is really different than what I'm use to but worked really good in this dish. My daughter and roommate both really enjoyed it, and I was surprised by how good it was using the spice mixes.

All I did to make this was sautee 1 sliced onion, 4 cloves garlic, and 1 tbs. ginger paste until onion was translucent...next I added in 2 cut up chicken breasts with one chopped tomato till chicken turned white...then I added in about 1/2 cup yogurt, a little water, 2 tbs. Rogan Josh, 1 tsp. Garam Masala and one 16 ounce bag of frozen spinach...I cooked this until thick and creamy and added salt to taste. We had this with some breads and raita, YUM!

Wow Meeso
The chicken sure looks tempting - U made is sound soo easy.. I have never tried chicken palak, coz I think the spinach will make the dish bland.

Have to try this..
