    Serves: 4 

    • 2 chicken breasts
    • 1L chicken stock
    • 225g low-fat plain yoghurt
    • 2 teaspoons grated lime zest
    • 2 teaspoons lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon curry powder
    • 4 tablespoons sliced green onions
    • 4 tablespoons sliced red and green pepper

    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 4 tablespoons chopped cashews
    • 4 naan breads

    1. Place chicken and stock in a pan, bring to the boil, then simmer for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
    2. While the chicken is cooking, stir together the yoghurt, lime zest, lime juice and curry powder (if you are a lime fan, you might want to add more!). Add the green onions, celery, peppers, chopped coriander and salt.
    3. When the chicken is cooked, remove from the pan, and let it cool. Using a fork, shred the chicken. If you don't want it shredded, cube it to whatever size you prefer. It's up to you! Stir the chicken into the yoghurt mix.
    4. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4, and place the naan breads directly on the top rack. Heat until warm and flexible, but not crisp and brittle.
    5. Remove the naan from oven, place them on a plate, and fold in half so that you know where to place the chicken salad mixture. Spoon a quarter of the chicken salad mixture on to each naan, sprinkle with chopped cashews, and garnish with the coriander sprig. Fold the naan in half, open mouth widely, and enjoy the many flavours of this truly delicious dish.

    Cook's note

    We really hope others enjoy this as much as we do. And remember, play with the flavours. Start off with a little lime; if it isn't enough, add more! Perhaps use garam masala instead of run-of-the-mill curry powder. It is, of course, up to you. :)

    I loved the lime flavor!  -  07 Nov 2013  (Review from Allrecipes India)


    This was delicious! I left out the green pepper, celery and cashews because I don't like the crunch, but the flavors were stunning. Thanks for a wonderful idea!  -  19 Jun 2013  (Review from Allrecipes India)
