For the Marinade- In a large bowl mix yogurt, lemon juice and spices well. Add chicken, making sure to fully submerge into marinade. Cover and marinade in the refrigerator for approximately 4 hours.
Once chicken is marinated, grill over a med/high heat until almost reaching an internal temperature of 165℉, approximately 5-6 mins per side. Once grilled, set aside and let rest until completion of masala sauce. Slightly under cooking chicken will help keep moist as it continues cooking in the masala sauce.
For the Masala Sauce- Measure spices in a small bowl- set aside. Heat a small stockpot over med heat. Add butter and onions, sauté until translucent-about 4-5 mins. Add garlic and continue sautéing for another 2 mins. Add spices and heat & stir until aromatic, about 1 min. Mix in tomato paste & heat for an additional 30 sec. Slowly whisk in coconut milk. While coconut milk is heating measure yogurt. Make sure to temper yogurt by adding a bit of hot coconut milk first before adding yogurt to sauce. Add yogurt and stir well. Cut chicken breasts into 1/2 inch cubes and add to sauce. Add chopped cilantro and simmer for 15-20 mins over med/low heat.
Serve over rice or quinoa and garnish with chopped cilantro.
