DIRECTIONS

  • Coarsely process the 1st nine ingredients (onion through salt) with 2 Tbsp water in a blender or food processor.
  • In a 12-inch skillet or sauté pan, saute sliced onion in oil over medium high heat until onion turns golden.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low, add processed onion-seasonings mixture to pan and saute about 4 minutes, stirring constantly, scraping pan often to prevent from sticking and burning.
  • Add chicken to pan, tossing to coat thoroughly, then add tomatoes, peas and 1/3 cup water.
  • Increase heat to medium, cover pan, and let simmer 25 min; uncover and continue to cook until sauce is thickened and chicken is very tender.
  • Fold in raisins and continue to cook just long enough to heat through.
  • Spread a bed of rice on each of 4 plates or shallow bowls, pile chicken and sauce over rice, then spoon yogurt over the top.
