Easy Indian-Spiced Braised Chicken

4-6 servings
A friend served this at her house one night and I loved it! I was thrilled when I tried it on my husband and he loved it too! It was terrific to find something new, easy and really different to add to our list of "the usuals". Boneless, skinless breast tenderloins would work well with this if you prefer that to dark meat. Try World Market or Penzeys.com if you have trouble finding the garam masala. The Uncle Ben's microwaveable Ready Rice is a GREAT shortcut and makes this dish easier to take to a potluck or to a friend. I do recommend going with the plain whole grain Ready Rice brown rice versus any of the other Uncle Ben's Ready Rice flavors because it contains much, much less salt.
