First of all, you may be thinking “whoa, this blog looks different than last time I was here.” That is accurate. Truth is, I recently celebrated six months of blogging – five to six posts each week. Of course, I know six months is a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things. But I’m only just getting started – I’ll be doing this for a good long time. Still, I celebrated six months by treating myself to some help from a designer and giving my page a bit of a refresh. I hope you like it and find it easy to navigate. But anyway…

Happy Sunday! I’m going to be spending my day doing absolutely nothing, and it’s going to be absolutely amazing. It’s a rare luxury in the summertime to have a weekend day with no plans. Ok, maybe I won’t do nothing today. But what I will do will likely involve pancakes. And a bike ride. Maybe a leisurely dog walk. And a glass of scotch while watching watching/hyperventilating over Breaking Bad. Seriously, that show. My jaw is perma-clenched just thinking about how it’s all going to turn out.

Even though I haven’t yet visited India, my dish today is a sandwich made with tandoori chicken. Is this authentic? Well, my marinade is adapted from a well-loved (by me) Food Network Magazine recipe, so you do the math. However, I can guarantee you that the chicken issuper tender and seasoned in good stuff like fresh ginger, tomato paste, hot paprika and garlic. Wrapped up in a soft flatbread with some cilantro-flecked Greek yogurt and crunchy veggies, this  flavor-packed tandoori chicken wrap that brings Indian street food to your home dinner table.

Pssst – if you love experimenting with wrap sandwiches as much as I do (love!), check out these Greek Taco Wraps.

Tandoori Chicken Wraps

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 (3-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 small red onion, roughly chopped, plus 1/4 of the onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons hot paprika, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 whole wheat flatbread wraps
  • 4 large pieces Romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved

Directions:

  1. In blender or food processor, process garlic, ginger, chopped onion, 2 tablespoons yogurt, oil, tomato paste, 1-3/4 teaspoons paprika, coriander and cumin until it forms a mostly smooth paste (there will be a few chunks, that’s OK). Place chicken in large zip-top bag; pour marinade over chicken. Seal bag and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Place chicken on rimmed baking pan and bake 18 to 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F, turning once. Transfer chicken to cutting board; let stand 5 minutes. Slice chicken crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces.
  3. Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together cilantro, salt, and remaining 1/2 cup yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon paprika.
  4. Build wraps using flatbread, lettuce, tomatoes, sliced onion, chicken and yogurt mixture.

  19. Isn’t street food the best, I am almost never disappointed. Tandoori chicken is so good, love that you put it in sandwich/wrap form. Great idea, it’s portable and you have your whole meal in one neat package. Must try!

  37. There has been much teeth clenching at our house too! My elder daughter bought her father season 1 for Christmas the year Breaking Bad started and he’s been hooked ever since. I was scared to start watching and now I am so far behind it doesn’t seem possible to catch up. Her little sister, on the other hand, has spent this summer on Breaking Bad marathons and is up to season 5. So, much clenching at our house this summer. 🙂

    Your beautiful tandoori wraps look like the perfect combination of succulent chicken and fresh salad, Lori. The colors are gorgeous and the flavors sound delicious!

    • Oh, Stacy, it won’t matter how long you take to catch up – it’ll be worth it. It’s just so incredibly riveting and complex, in the best way possible. I definitely agree with all of the hype – it’s one of the greatest TV shows ever made!

  40. Thank you and thank you, Tara 🙂

  41. What?!? I need to come back to SF, stat, and seek out this truck! That sounds amazing!

  42. Thanks so much, Suzanne! I agree – I’m almost never disappointed in street food. Probably because their margins are pretty slim – if they’re not selling a great product, they won’t be able to stay in business.

  43. Thanks so much for stopping by 🙂

  44. I had one for lunch yesterday, in fact 🙂

  45. Thanks for all of the kind words, Soni!

  46. Thank you and thank you, Megan 🙂

  47. I’m sure I could eat one of these every day for a few weeks. What great flavors! Incredible photos too.
