Green Curry Chicken

Blend in the food processor: cilantro, red onion, mint, garlic, 1/2 cup of white cooking wine, ginger, 2 tsps cumin, 1/2 tsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp turmeric, salt and pepper. Cook onion or shallots with olive oil in an iron skillet. Brown the chicken in the same skillet. Add the mixture from the food processor to the skillet. Add more cooking wine if it starts to dry out as you will now be simmering it until the chicken is done. When the chicken is done add about 1/4 cup of plain yogurt.
If you don't want to use cooking with use more chicken broth.
