chicken tikka sandwich

Sometimes a dinner that takes 10 minutes to prepare is exactly what you need. By avoiding the take-out joints, you can save a bit of money and keep healthy.
Jamie Oliver's Quick Salmon Tikka with Cucumber Yogurt recipe is so easy that I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I make it -- especially since it involves a jar of curry paste. The recipe includes ingredients that can all be purchased at a grocery store like Zehrs to get President's Choice naan bread and Patak's tandoori mild curry paste.

Usually I stick with salmon but tonight we tried chicken breasts. I suspect that halibut would work well too. In fact, as I write this I think I'm going to try lamb next time...

Ingredients for Chicken Tikka Sandwich

Naan in the oven, just follow the instructions on the package

Enjoy your sandwich with a beer, I chose Dos Equis Lager (it reminds me of Acapulco!)



  1. Made it last night with Chilaen Sea Bass.
    Wife liked it and she's not into fish so I guess that's saying something.
    We'll make this again. Really easy recipe. Thanks Jor and Jamie O.

    Question: Is Jamie Oliver's tongue is too big for his mouth?

  2. I'm going to try this tonight... I'm running right now to get all the ingredients because I am so absolutely excited to try this! :)
    I hope my little girly likes this dish, I'm going to make a couple of strips of salmon without the paste, just in case.

  3. ... and it was yum. Thanks.


  4. Glad to hear that everyone is enjoying this recipe. It's so simple and easily adaptable. I love it for a weeknight meal.

  5. I actually got adventurous and made Jamie's tikka paste recipe a month or so back. I used half in his chiken tikka curry recipke, and froze the rest, but now have only about a tablespoon left. I'm planning to make the salmon tikka this weekend, so it was cool to see your blog. Thanks for the pictures! Wonderful to find another Canadian who loves Jamie. :)
