Each wrap is loaded with grilled vegetables and tandoori chicken topped with freshly-squeezed lime juice. Enjoy the tandoori chicken skewers with or without the wrap at your next BBQ. —Health Dish

What You'll Need
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast, cubed
  • 4 mini naan
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 ginger piece, 1" in size, minced
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 2 limes, halved
  • 4 metal skewers or wooden bamboo skewers
  1. In a medium glass bowl, mix together yogurt, vegetable oil, ginger, garlic, garam masala, paprika, cayenne pepper, turmeric, salt. (Note: You can also use a food processor to blend these ingredients into a smooth paste). Mix in chicken until coated evenly. Cover and refrigerate. Let chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for best results.
  2. Heat grill to medium-high. Grill green pepper and onion slices for 2 minutes on each side. Set aside vegetables. Meanwhile, thread chicken onto skewers.
  3. Cook chicken on heated grill and cover. Use leftover marinade to coat chicken during the first 5 minutes of cooking. Turn the skewers over, coat with leftover marinade and continue cooking for another 3 minutes. The chicken is done when the inside is no longer pink and the juices run clear. This process takes about 8 to 12 minutes total.
  4. Fill mini naan with the chicken and grilled vegetables. Top with the juice of half a lime and fresh cilantro.
