    cup yogurt

  • 1

    tablespoon lemon juice

  • 2

    teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2

    teaspoons cayenne pepper

  • 2

    teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

  • 1

    tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 4

    teaspoons salt, or to taste

  • 3

    boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 4

    long skewers

  • For sauce:

  • 1

    tablespoon butter

  • 1

    clove garlic, minced

  • 1

    jalapeno pepper, finely chopped

    teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2

    teaspoons paprika

  • 3

    teaspoons salt, or to taste

  • 1

    (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1

    cup heavy cream

Directions

In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, black pepper, ginger, and 4 teaspoons salt. Stir in chicken, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat a grill for high heat. Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade. Grill until juices run clear, about 5 minutes on each side. Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic and jalapeno for 1 minute. Season with 2 teaspoons cumin, paprika, and 3 teaspoons salt. Stir in tomato sauce and cream. Simmer on low heat until sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Add grilled chicken, and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, and garnish with fresh cilantro.
