Nickspalate Contest Winner Recipe (Chicken Tikka Wrap)

Written By Neerakar on Sunday, May 18, 2014 | 5:52 AM

Congratulations to Dixya Bhattarai of Irving, Texas for winning " Nickspalate Cook your heart out contest". She was judged based on presentation, direction and simplicity. Here is her award winning recipe.

Chicken Tikka Wrap
Makes about 6 wraps 


For Chicken Tikka
1.5 lbs chicken thigh, boneless and skinless
1 tablespoon chicken tikka masala (available at Indian grocery stores)
1.5 tablespoon plain, non-fat Greek yogurt (regular yogurt works too)
2 teaspoon red chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
2-3 tablespoon oil
For the spread:
1 tablespoon mint chutney and 2 tablespoon non-fat Greek yogurt
For the wrap:
6 tortilla wraps (I used spinach-herb but any kind will work)
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
2-3 medium tomato, thinly sliced and insides removed
handful fresh mint leaves, few Thai chili chopped (optional)


- In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the chicken tikka except for oil and let it marinade for at least 5-8 hours covered in the refrigerator.
- Heat about 1 tablespoon oil in a grill pan over medium heat. Arrange chicken pieces and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side making sure they are evenly cooked on both sides. Use the remaining oil to baste the chicken every minute or so.

- Remove from heat and set aside.
- In the meantime, make the spread by combining mint chutney with yogurt until evenly mixed together.
- Cut chicken pieces into strips or bite-size.
- Warm the tortilla (totally optional but I noticed it makes wrapping little easier) then spread a thin layer of spread, onion tomatoes and chicken, add mint and chili if you like as shown in the picture above. Add more spread if you like. 

- Wrap them tightly and enjoy. 

Bon Apetit
