  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken, yogurt, lemon juice, garam masala, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to coat the chicken evenly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours.
  2. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Thread the chicken onto skewers and grill for 8-10 minutes, or until it is cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.

  4. Stir in the diced tomatoes, heavy cream, sugar, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
  5. Stir in the grilled chicken and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the chicken is heated through.
  6. Stir in the cilantro and serve hot with your choice of side dishes. Enjoy!
