Instructions

Marinating the Chicken Tikka Masala:

1) In a medium mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the tikka masala marinade.

2) Combine 3 Tbsp yogurt, 2 tsp chili powder, 2 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp turmeric, 1 Tbsp tikka masala mix, 1 Tbsp ginger garlic paste, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, and 1 tsp salt.

3) Mix the tikka masala marinade well until it forms a smooth paste.

4) Cut up 1 pound of chicken breast into small 1/2 inch cubes. Add the chicken to the marinade and mix thoroughly so the chicken is evenly coated.

5) Cover and marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

PRO TIP: Marinate your chicken overnight for a deeper and more delicious flavor!

Cooking the Chicken Tikka Masala:

1) In a large frying pan over medium high heat, add 1-2 Tbsp of ghee or butter.

2) Once hot, add 1/2 of an onion sliced thinly to the ghee and saute, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.

3) Once the onion starts to get some golden color, add 1/2 bell pepper thinly sliced and saute, stirring occasionally for another 5 minutes.

4) Remove the veggies from the pan and set aside for later.

5) In the same pan over medium high heat, add the marinated chicken.

6) Cook the chicken, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.

7) Add the cooked veggies to the chicken and mix. Cook for an additional 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

8) Once the chicken is fully cooked (internal temperature 165 F), turn off the heat, add 2 Tbsp chopped coriander leaves, mix, and set aside.

How to Assemble the Chicken Tikka Quesadillas:

1) In a large pan over LOW heat, add a small amount of ghee or butter. Add the naan or tortilla to the pan.

PRO TIP: Feel free to use parathas or tortillas instead! Get creative, this part is all up to you.

2) Add a thin layer of cheese on top of the naan, then add a layer of chicken tikka masala mix. Finally add another thin layer of cheese on top.

3) Next, fold the naan in half over top of the filling, or add another piece of naan over top for a large quesadilla.

4) After the bottom gets crispy and golden brown, about 5 minutes, flip to the other side.

5) Continue cooking on low heat until the other side is golden and crispy, and all of the cheese is melted inside.

6) Remove from the pan, cut into pieces, and serve with your favorite raita or chutney.

Enjoy!
