Recipe – Indian Chicken Pizza Naans

Today Ste made me an amazing tea and I’ve asked him if I can share the recipe as I think you will all love it!

Indian Style Pizza Naans

Ingredients

1 tin of chopped tomatoes

2 tablespoons tomato puree

1 large garlic clove (minced)

Teaspoon dried mixed herbs

2 spring onions (diced)

Salt

Pepper

How To Make It

  • Put the chopped tomatoes and tomato puree in a saucepan and bring to the boil
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer and add the other ingredients
  • Leave it to reduce and thicken
  • Blitz with a hand blender till smooth
  • This made more sauce than was needed and the rest went into the freezer once cooled to use in the future

Four individual plain naan breads

Sliced chicken breast (cooked in Ste’s secret Indian marinade but you could use a curry paste to your desired taste)

Red onion (finely sliced)

Finely chopped fresh coriander

For the Mint Sauce

Ingredients

Large tablespoon creme fraiche

Finely chopped fresh mint (to taste)

A couple of splashes of vinegar

How To Make It

I absolutely loved this, the flavours were amazing and it was a great twist on one of my favourite foods – pizza! To make the chicken extra tasty, you can put it in the marinade you choose in the morning in the fridge and let it sit all day before cooking as you make your pizza sauce. It is also an easy enough recipe to get the kids involved with too and would be good for introducing new flavours to them.
