Chicken Tikka Masala

I have made chicken tikka masala many times before, using many different recipes, and while they are usually all very good, they have all been very time consuming and involved a lot of steps. Until I found this recipe, which seemed far too easy to be good, but I have to say that this was not only the easiest chicken tikka I have made, but I would also say it was the best. We will definitely be making this again!

1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 tbsp butter
1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 can diced tomatoes
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 tbsp corn starch
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp paprika
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

Melt butter in large skillet, add chicken, onion and lemon juice and cook for 10 minutes.
Add all of the spices and cook for 1 minute. Add the canned tomatoes.
Stir the cream, corn starch and salt together until smooth, slowly add to the chicken.
Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Served with rice, naan bread and mango chutney.
