Directions:
Marinating the chicken: Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Add chicken chunks and coat with the marinade. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Sautéing the chicken: Add chicken chunks along with the marinade to a 3-quart pan over medium-high heat and sauté until the chicken is mostly cooked, about 5 minutes.
Simmering the sauce: Reduce to medium heat. Add butter, jalapeño, and garlic to the same pan. Cook until the garlic browns, about 1 minute. Add the tomato sauce, heavy whipping cream, garam masala, paprika, and salt. Mix well. Bring to a boil and then decrease heat to a simmer over medium-low heat. Simmer until the sauce thickens, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serving: Serve with basmati rice or naan. Garnish with cilantro or parsley.
