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

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. 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.

  3. Lay slices of bread on a clean cutting board and butter. Now spread a generous layer of mint-coriander chutney on the bread.

  4. Chop chicken tikka into slices and lay on bread to cover the entire surface of 2 of the slices.

  5. Now add onion as per preference, on top of chicken.

  6. Cover with another slice of bread.

  7. Trim edges if preferred, cut in half, and serve.
