Think your kids won't go for Indian? Think again. This deliciously seasoned chicken breast is a mild introduction to the wonderful world of ethnic cuisine, in friendly, familiar wrap form. Served with yogurt curry sauce, mixed greens and mango chutney, it's healthy and heavenly!
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 tbsp curry powder
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cup Greek yogurt
tortillas, lavosh or naan bread
Place the chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap on a cutting board. Using a meat pounder, pound the breasts into pieces that are no more than ½” thick. Cut each breast in half so they are easier to manage in a frying pan.
Combine 2 tablespoons of the curry powder with ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Sprinkle the mixture over both sides of the chicken.
Combine 1 cup of the yogurt, the additional tablespoon of curry powder, and a pinch of salt and fresh grinding of pepper. Stir to combine and set aside.
Warm one tablespoon of the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook the chicken for 3-5 minutes, turning once, until it is just cooked through. You may need to wipe out the pan and add more oil between batches. Remove the chicken and allow to rest. Slice the meat into ½” pieces and tent with foil to keep warm.
Wipe out the pan if there are any browned bits and return it to medium heat. Warm your bread of choice in the pan just to soften them a little, flipping them if you’d like.
