Yesterday morning I pulled what I believed to be enough for a pie but after it was washed and chopped I had well over 8 cups.
In hindsight, I do not recommend doing this. It was crumbly and difficult to work with. Pie is pie nonetheless. Tastes the same whether it looks beautiful or not.
Unfortunately, Paul had to catch a flight and did not get a chance to taste it. "Save some for me when I get back" he shouted as he closed the door behind himself. Of course there will be pie left as he is the dessert person of the family.
Fortunately, he was able to stay for dinner. In fact, he grilled the chicken. Our daughter Jessica was in town so she was able to join us for this wonderful, simple summer dinner. Isn't is just lovely looking? It tastes fantastic too. Even if you are not a curry fan you should try this anyway. I'll bet you will love it.
Total time: 45 minutes
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp curry powder
2 tsps extra virgin olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
3 garlic cloves, minced. (I use a microplane for both this and the sauce)
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
1/2 cup plain greek style yogurt
2 Tbsp tahini paste
2 tsp fresh lemon juice ( I used more)
1/2 tsp salt
1 garlic clove
4 naan breads (can use pita or any flat bread)
Preheat grill to med-high heat.
Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat. Let stand at room temp 20 minutes. (I let mine marinate for up to several hours)
Combine sauce ingredients, stirring with a whisk. ( I also make this well in advance to develop the flavours)
Either thread chicken on a skewer or use a grill pan on the BBQ. Grill until done.
Brush naan bread with olive oil and grill a few minutes each side until warm and slightly browned.
Place 1 naan bread on each plate. Top with lettuce and tomato slices. Top with grilled chicken and drizzle with sauce. Finish the whole thing of with a few glugs of olive oil. That's it.
I just know this will be one of your favorite dinner on the deck meals. Enjoy!
