Delicious chicken tikka wraps are quick and easy to make. This healthy recipe uses yogurt to make the tandoori sauce and the chicken is grilled.
Folks, here I’ve made one of the most popular dishes you might find in an Indian restaurant, chicken tikka masala into fantastic chicken tikka wraps!
Chicken tikka masala makes for a tasty treat when you’re out enjoying dinner but it can be quite high on the calories side.
A standard restaurant sized portion might even be as high as 768 calories!
So if you want to enjoy the taste, but not the calories look no further than my lower fat chicken tikka wraps recipe.
All in all, including the wraps you’ll find these much less calorific and you can easily serve these with plenty more salad to “bulk” up the recipe too!
I promise that there is no compromise on taste with this chicken tikka recipe.
I’ve ommited the butter and cream that the traditional Indian recipe uses and substituted them with yogurt instead.
This recipe is really easy to make.
The hardest part is probably having to wait until the chicken has marinated long enough to have absorbed all the delicious spicy flavours before you cook it!
For making my chicken tikka wraps the chicken that I’ve used is lean skinless chicken breasts.
As I mentioned above you should try and leave your chicken to marinate as long as possible.
You’ll keep the inside of the chicken juicier too if you make sure you turn the skewers throughout the grilling process to ensure they are cooked through evenly.
