Chicken Tandoori Sandwich

It seems all I cook these days is chicken. I actually cook other stuff but get lazy writing and posting about them. A week ago I smoked a 4-pound ham (which btw is waaay better than store bought) that I will feature in a future breakfast post. Anyways, last Sunday I read a tandoori chicken slider sandwich featured in a magazine restaurant review and I drool each time I see the photos of the sandwiches. I love tandoori-style chicken and the sandwich version looks really good. And it is so good, at least the one I made.:=)

For the tandoori I diced the chicken meat instead of ground and used aluminum rings for making crumpets to keep the meat patties from crumbling. I wanted to charcoal grill the patties but the weather was threatening (to rain) yesterday. Frying in very hot skillet worked just fine. I served the sandwiches with tzatziki broccoli slaw, shaved mini cucumber, and lots of tomatoes. Yummy! My daughter slathered homemade Greek yogurt cheese on the bottom bun and added tzatziki on top of the chicken for a triple dose of yogurt. Yummier!

The tandoori chicken sandwich looks like a keeper! Great lunch or dinner for that matter. I love the accompaniments and condiments you have.

Joelen, thanks!:)

JS, I love tandoori chicken and I like the idea of making it into a sandwich...very handy and can be enjoyed outdoors.

i was thinking the other day of making some chicken curry burgers but i guess your tandoori are the better

Dhanggit, you gave me an idea for burgers, I'll try curry flavor.
