Chicken Naan Sandwich Recipe- Chicken Naanwich


Chicken patties sandwiched between mini Naan breads, you get to enjoy chicken Naanwich…

Making naanwich was absolutely not in my mind when I entered the Kitchen yesterday. My intention was to quick fix a meal without spending much time. That’s when I’ll be seen baking chicken patties so that I can serve them with salad or wrap them in tortilla or pita bread, couldn’t get any easier.

Only work I had to do was combining the ground chicken with all the ingredients and make into balls, the oven took care of the baking and I was seen doing other chores. When the chicken patties came out of the oven perfectly baked, I was all set to serve them with salad and ranch dressing.

As I opened the refrigerator, mini naan breads had a word with me and convinced me that I could make something fancy with them. That idea was so impressive that I had to ditch the salad and go behind the mini naan breads. Hence, these fancy Naanwiches were made, served and enjoyed…

My man and I loved these, the chicken patties along with the mini naan breads tasted delicious. I foresee myself making these quite often and these are going to be a hit in parties as well.
