    For the marinade: Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large bowl then mix in the chicken. Wrap the bowl with cling film and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
    For the tikka masala: Pour the oil into a pan and set over medium-high heat. Toss in the onions and fry until golden.
    Mix in the ginger, chilli powder, coriander and cumin and fry for another 30 seconds. Add the garlic and cook again for 30 seconds. Tip in the tomatoes and fry for 1 or 2 minutes. Lower the heat, add the tomato paste and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes.
    Mix in the marinated chicken, coating the breasts evenly with the sauce. Pour in the water then put a lid on and stew over low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes, while stirring from time to time.
    Tip in the cream, season with salt and simmer for another 5 minutes, until completely cooked.
