A dairy free version of the creamy Indian dish. Serve over hot brown rice. Yum! (Prep time does not include marinating)

We loved this! I paired it with brown basmati rice, broiled the chicken in the oven, then served with broccoli on the side. Wonderful; even my two picky little boys loved it. Thank you!
