A versatile clean eating recipe, made with ground chicken, which can me made to last a few days! Perfect for those flavor craving meal prep days.
Course: Main Course
1tbspginger, fresh and grated
1tbspgarlic, fresh and minced
1largeonion, finely chopped, grated, or food processed
1largetomato, finely chopped
red chili powder
Heat pan on medium heat and add oil. Once hot add finely chopped onions and saute until golden brown.
Once the onions have slightly browned add the tomatoes, garlic, ginger, chicken masala, tomato paste, salt, coriander powder, some chopped cilantro (optional), and turmeric.
Allow the mixture to cook for about 3-5 minutes. At this point you can use a hand blender and puree the mixture if you would like. Then add the chicken. SIDE NOTE: I like to mix the ground chicken to remove the "stringed" meat look before cooking.
Using a spatula or a ground meat masher to mash and mix the chicken with the mixture. TIP: flatten/squeeze the meat at the bottom of the pan while mixing if you do not have a meat masher. This will prevent the meat from bulking into large clumps.
Continue to mix frequently for an additional 7-10 minutes on medium heat.
Once all of the natural water has evaporated cook for a few additional minutes so that the oil shines through.
Garnish with the rest of the cilantro and serve.
Happy Eating Folks! <3
