This chicken tikka masala naan flatbread is perfect for easy weeknight dinners or a quick and satisfying lunch! All you have to do is cut the chicken into bite size pieces. Season them with a little salt and pepper. Then add some oil to a skillet and cook the chicken until it’s golden and cooked through. Next, you just need to add the tikka simmer sauce and let everything simmer on low for about 5-7 minutes.
Once you’re done those steps you will top your naan flatbreads with the sauce and chicken. Then sprinkle on the cheese. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the naan is crisped to your liking. Top with some fresh chopped cilantro and cut into pieces. Then enjoy 😋 it’s so yummy and filling.
Pro tip: if you need to re-heat some of the slices. If you have an air fryer, I recommend re-heating in there. It’s quick and efficient. I just lay mine in a single layer and air fry at 380 for 5-8 minutes or until they’re hot and melty.
I hope everyone stays safe, sane and healthy. Let me know if you have any recipe requests in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.Print
