Ingredients

  • whole-grain naan flatbread
  • 2  Tablespoons  olive oil
  • cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2  red onion, sliced thinly
  • 2  Teaspoons  garam masala, or to taste
  • 2  Teaspoons  curry powder, or to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2  Tablespoons  mango chutney
  • 2-4  Ounces  shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1  Tablespoon  chopped cilantro

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil until shimmering. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the red onion and cook over medium-low heat until soft, about 10 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of the garam masala, 1 teaspoon of the curry powder, and season with salt and pepper, to taste while cooking. Once the onions have softened, remove from the heat.

Season the chicken pieces with the remaining garam masala, curry powder, and salt and pepper, to taste. To the same pan, add the remaining olive oil and increase the heat to medium-high. Add the seasoned chicken and cook until cooked through, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat.

To assemble the pizza, place the naan on a baking sheet. Spread the mango chutney evenly over the naan. Add a little cheese on top of the chutney. Place the onions, chicken, and a bit more cheese around the pizza. Bake until the cheese is melted and the naan is heated through, about 5-6 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with cilantro, and enjoy!

Naan Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Naan Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
