This meal makes a regular appearance at our table. When I plan my menus and ask my hubby, Jeff, what he wants to eat, this is often one of his requests. This is an Indian dish, but don't let that scare you because to me the thought of Indian food is a little scary. I've never eaten at an Indian restaurant and I wouldn't normally try something like this. It was first introduced to me by my fabulous mother-in-law and we have made it many times since. Now I just need to learn how to make Naan bread so we can have an authentic side dish to go with this meal.

Combine first 9 ingredients and marinate in the refrigerator overnight (or at least for most of the day).
Saute the onion in the butter until soft. Add marinated chicken and cook about 10 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 30 minutes. While chicken is simmering, cook rice according to package directions. Remove chicken from heat. Stir in the whipping cream and cilantro. Serve over hot rice.
