1.5 pound of chicken breast, cubed

1/2 cup of Greek yogurt

Sprinkle the raw chicken with the lime juice. Melt the butter in a pan with the spices. Mix in the onion, garlic, ginger and cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Add the chicken and let it brown on each side for 2 more minutes. (note: I added a red chili pepper because we like it in my family but it is totally optionnal)


Mix in the tomatoes, the tomato paste and the maple syrup and let it cook on medium-low heat for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is well-done. 


Mix the cream and the yogurt together, incorporate to the chicken and simmer for about 2 minutes.
