hCG Diet Spiced Chicken with Black Cumin Seeds

This shows just how under-rated Garam Masala is as a marinade, and illustrates beautifully the wonderful flavour of black cumin – make sure you use the true jeera kala, not nigella seeds. It’s an easy meal to put together at the end of a busy day, and if you don’t have any ground almond to provide a little thickening, just mix the garam masala with a little plain flour when you coat the chicken.

Ingredients
Serves: 3 

  1. 4 boned chicken thighs, trimmed no skin
  2. 1/4 teaspoon medium chilli flakes
  3. 1 teaspoon black cumin seeds
  4. 2 spring onions sliced
  5. 1 garlic clove crushed, or a pinch of garlic powder
  6. 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  7. 1/4 cup tomato puree
  8. 1/2 cup plain yoghurt
  9. 1 teaspoon ground almonds
  10. 1/4 tsp himalayan salt
  11. 1 teaspoon fenugreek leaves

Directions

  1. Pat garam masala onto all sides of the chicken and marinate 30 minutes.
  2. Heat pan, dry roast black cumin seeds and chilli flakes for 1 minute.
  3. Add oil, spring onions, garlic and chicken, and brown chicken on both sides over high heat.
  4. Remove chicken to a plate, reduce heat and add tomato, yoghurt, salt, almonds and fenugreek leaves. Simmer, stirring, for 4-5 minutes.
  5. Return chicken and any juices to pan and simmer until cooked through.
  6. Serve with rice.
