Tandoori Chicken Sandwich

By Kristineduffey @GeminiWriter81
In light of last night’s really disappointing dinner David and I needed a good meal but we didn’t want to blow our points. I pulled out a recipe we already like and altered it a little for our current diet. We both agree that it turned out great. So, I’m happy to share it with you.I had tried a similar recipe before but I didn’t use yogurt as the original recipe called for cream cheese. Replacing the cream cheese with plain Greek yogurt still makes a great dish. Many of these ingredients can be found at Super Target but if you shop around I’m sure you can find them at another store. I’ll give the breakdown of the weight watchers points plus at the end.This is a Tandoori Chicken SandwichTandoori Chicken SandwichIngredients1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken strips1 Cup of Greek Yogurt2 Tablespoons of Tandoori paste ( use more or less to taste)Bamboo SkewersTomatoChopped Onion (I used green onion)Shredded LettuceReduced Fat Feta CheeseDill yogurt/Tzatziki sauce (I used Otria)Prepared Naan Bread (I used Archer Farms from Target)
DirectionsCut each of your chicken strips in to 4 roughly equal pieces and set aside. In a bowl with a lid combine 1 cup of Greek Yogurt and 2 tablespoons of Tandoori paste. Tandoori Chicken SandwichAdd the diced chicken to the mixture. Tandoori Chicken Sandwich
Stir to coat all of the chicken. Put the lid on the bowl and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least half an hour. 12 to 24 hours is better. The mix will appear darker or lighter depending upon how much Tandoori Paste you add to the yogurt.

When you are ready to cook your chicken turn you broiler on high on your oven to preheat. Prepare a broiler pan with rack. Spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Skewer chicken chunks on the bamboo skewers and lay across the broiler rack.

We baked Archer Farms Samosas to go along with this. 3 samosas = 5 WW Points Plus points with an additional tablespoon of the Yogurt Dill dip = 1 WW Points Plus points.The entire meal was 14 points and extremely satisfying. We had leftovers to take to work for lunch.
You can have 2 sandwiches for 16 points and skip the samosas if you want or have it all if you have the points to spare.
