Recipe: Tandoori Chicken - Cheddar Cheese - Chutney Naanwich

Use prepared foods to create a delicious and unique naan sandwich -- the perfect Indian fusion lunch.


1 prepared naan (like Trader Joe's Garlic Naan-- found in the freezer section)
2.4 ounces mild cheddar cheese (like Trader Joe's California Mild Cheddar Cheese)
2 Tbsp. prepared sweet or tangy (not sour) chutney (like Trader Joe's Mango Ginger Chutney -- found with other shelf-stable condiments)
3 ounces prepared tandoori chicken (like Tandoor Chef Chicken Tandoori with Spinach -- found in the freezer section of Whole Foods Market)

You'll Also Need:
an oven or toaster oven to heat up the naan, toothpicks to hold the naanwich together


1. If the cheese and/or chutney are in your fridge, pull them out to bring them closer to room temperature (ideally, about half an hour before you start the rest of the steps).
2. Heat the naan according to the package directions. (For TJ's Garlic Naan, heat in a preheated 400°F oven for 1 minute.)
3. While the naan is heating up, slice the cheese into about 0.5-in. thick slices.
4. Tear the naan into two roughly symmetrical pieces (I had to tear mine vertically for this). Plate one, then put the cheese slices on top of the other. Heat the cheese-topped piece in the oven for about 2 minutes.
5. While the cheese is melting, heat up the tandoori chicken according to the package directions.
6. Place the chicken pieces on top of the cheese-topped naan piece. (If you used a frozen dinner in which the chicken mixed with spinach or another sauce, like I did, pull the chicken out of the sauce so your sandwich isn't soggy. You don't have to get the sauce totally off though.)
7. Spread the chutney evenly over the chicken.
8. Top with the other naan piece. Use toothpicks to hold the naanwich together. If you used a frozen dinner that came with a sauce/side, plate the remainder up as a side dish or dipping sauce.
Serves 1.

The AHH Factor:
I love recipes that are more food assembly than actual food preparation/cooking. It's like you do just enough work to where you feel like you really accomplished something, but not so much that you're tired and faced with a pile of dirty pots and pans. I was inspired to create this recipe after I purchased some TJ's Mango Ginger Chutney on a whim. Of course, you're also welcome to make this recipe using homemade leftovers. I've yet to create or collect recipes for chutney or naan and can only make tandoori chicken using the boxed spice mix, so I used Trader Joe's as the source for most of my ingredients. I wasn't sure how well naan would hold up in a sandwich, but it performed admirably. I will say mention though, that even with the toothpicks, the sandwich will fall apart after the first few bites -- but when is Indian food ever tidy?

Any suggestions for what I should do with the rest of the chutney? And, does any one know where to buy prepped tandoori chicken that's the chicken only (without a sauce or side dish included)?
