Indian Butter Chicken

If you love Indian food, this is to die for. It is my favorite thing I've ever made. Try it, you'll like it!

The recipe is hard to read. Can you type it up? I haven't ever made Indian food before, but it looks good.

2 Tablespoons butter
1 Cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 Tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 whole rotisserie chicken skin removed and chopped in chunks
1/3 Cup half and half
¼ Cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon minced fresh cilantro

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook and stir until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add ginger, chili powder, turmeric, and cinnamon; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, brown sugar, salt and pepper.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add chicken, cream and sour cream; simmer uncovered for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro. Serve over rice if desired.
