Lime Butter Chicken
Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Cut chicken into large bite-size pieces, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide. In a large frying pan, combine broth, jalapeno (If you are not a fiery fan remove seeds before chopping), garlic, lime peel and juice, plus cumin, garam masala and salt. To develop flavor, boil gently, uncovered, until reduced to about a cup (250 mL), about 10 minutes.
Stir in cream, tomatoes and chicken. Cover and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat so mixture just simmers. Simmer, covered and stirring often, until chicken feels springy when tapped, about 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, stir cornstarch with 2 Tbsp (30 mL) water. Increase heat to medium. Stir fairly constantly until thickened, about 3 minutes. Cut cold butter into 6 pieces. Add one piece to the sauce and stir constantly until melted. Repeat with remaining pieces. Add peas, if using, and stir often until hot. Turn into a serving dish or spoon over rice on plates and sprinkle with coriander.
