Wonderful. I halved the cayenne pepper because I was worried it would be too spicy. I didn't have fat free half and half so I used 2% milk instead. I only had an 8oz can of tomato sauce. It still turned out great. Instead of chicken I used cubes of homemade paneer cheese.

Made this for dinner last night, it was excellent. I substituted boneless thighs because that's what I had thawed. When I was cooking my husband complained that there was too much sauce. When it was finished he could not stop dipping his naan bread in the extra sauce. Definitely a hit in my house. Thanks for the recipe.

I didn't see this recipe, I saw the original recipe and made it. It was FANTASTIC! Some changes I made -- instead of butter I used olive oil. My family likes very spicy dishes, so I added cayenne to the cream mixture. I can't find garam masala, so I used curry powder instead. I added frozen peas in the final 5 minutes of simmering. Delicious!! Now, I will have to try this lighter version. Thanks very much!
