Spice up your life with this Tandoori chicken wrap!

Yesterday, I felt a sudden crave for chicken tandoori. And good news, I have got tandoori spices which were waited for this moment since a long time now. And also some breast chicken in the fridge. Sometimes, life is good! 

But today I was wondering what to do with the leftover from this tandoori feast, when I decided to improvise a tandoori chicken wrap. I 've got no "panini machine", but a waflle maker will do. Because I love my wrap crusty and warm inside.

This was a success and here is an improvised and easy recipe for a tasty meal on the go.


For the tandoori chicken
Chicken breast cut in strips
1 tbsp greek yoghurt
1 tbsp honey or sugar
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chopped coriander 
1/2 tsp crushed ginger
1/2 tsp cumin powder
2 small crushed garlic gloves
1 tsp tandoori powder

For the garnish
Fresh coriander or parsley
1 eggplant cut in slices
1 tomato cut in slices
1 red onion
Salt and pepper

In a bowl add all the marinade ingredients except the salt. Mix well and add the chicken. Leave to marinade for a few hours (the longer you leave it the better it tastes, but if you're in a hurry, you can also cook it without waiting).

Add the salt to the marinated chicken and mix well.

Use a griddle pan for best results (even better a barbecue!) but it also works cooking it in the oven.
Heat your pan (or oven) until really hot and then add the chicken strips. Add the eggplant, the tomato and the onions rings and cook alongside. Allow to brown then turn it on the other side (add a little oil if too dry). 

As a wrap you can use fajitas or kebab wrap (even better, make your own: find the recipe here). Add a layer of the vegetables, then the chicken and add some coriander and ricotta on the top.
Cook the tandoori chicken wrap pieces in your toast / waffle maker. Serve with salad.

My tip : I used ricotta as I was running out of yogurt but you can use Greek yogurt mixed with mint and cucumber to make a raita, though it was delicious with ricotta. And tandoori chicken goes along with loads of other vegetables, depending on what you like and have in your fridge.
