I had some leftover chicken breast that I had no idea what to do with, I considered making grilled chicken to eat with salads, but I decided that would have been too boring (I’m not much of a grilled chicken breast fan anyways). I was inspired by this lamb masala that I ate at this amazing Indian place near my job so I decided to try and recreate the dish with chicken instead and of course with a Haitian twist.
