This may be the ultimate lunch. Not only is chicken tikka delicious the day you make it, if you're lucky to have some leftover the next day, make it into a sandwich.
If you're unfamiliar, chicken tikka is typically marinated in yogurt before being grilled or roasted. It is sometimes served with a rich tomato sauce and called chicken tikka masala. That dish is often served with rice and naan, but since you'll be eating just chicken tikka on a sandwich, you're all set.
1 large onion, sliced into thin rings
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon chaat masala, available at most Indian grocery stores
4 slices sandwich bread
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 to 5 tablespoons mint-coriander chutney
12 ounces leftover chicken tikka
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Put onion rings in a bowl and squeeze lime juice over them. Now sprinkle chaat masala over and mix well so onions are fully coated.
Lay slices of bread on a clean cutting board and butter. Now spread a generous layer of mint-coriander chutney on the bread.
Chop chicken tikka into slices and lay on bread to cover the entire surface of 2 of the slices.
Now add onion as per preference, on top of chicken.
Cover with another slice of bread.
Trim edges if preferred, cut in half, and serve.
