  • 4 chicken cutlets
  • 1 package kale, broccoli or cabbage slaw mix
  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, diced
  • 1 tub tzatziki or cucumber raita
  • Cilantro, for garnish
  • 4 Mini naan breads (or 2 pieces naan bread cut in half)

Tandoori spice mix

  • 2 tbsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Chicken marinade

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Tandoori spice mix
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat BBQ to high heat (450 F). Marinate chicken by mixing all ingredients together - you can marinate the chicken up to 24 hours in advance and you can make the Tandoori spice mix ahead of time as well.
  • Add chicken to the grill and cook for about 5 minutes per side or until chicken is fully cooked. Remove from heat. Add slaw to each mini naan (or naan half) and top with chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, tzatziki and cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
