spiced chicken and apple relish with yogurt and flatbread

This dish brings together a medley of great flavors and textures.

Tossing the chicken in a lime dressing once it’s cooked ensures that none of the bright citrus flavors get lost in the skillet. A little salt and pepper goes a long way and transforms yogurt into a delicious savory dip for warm naan. The final touch? A crunchy and refreshing sweet-tart apple relish. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

What you’ll need:
2 small granny smith apples
½ oz ginger
fresh mint
1 oz raisins
¼ cup rice vinegar
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3 tsp garam masala
2 limes
7 oz 2% Greek yogurt
2 pieces naan
coarse salt
freshly ground black pepper
sugar
olive oil

Equipment:
large skillet
zester

Recipe steps:
1. Prep ingredients
Cut sides from apples and discard core. Thinly slice apple, stack slices, and cut into matchsticks. Peel and grate ginger. Pick mint leaves from stems, reserve a few leaves for garnish and roughly chop the rest.

2. Make relish
Combine apples, ginger, vinegar, and 2 teaspoons sugar in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine.

3. Prep chicken and make dressing
Using a sharp knife and cutting parallel to the cutting board, split each chicken breast in half horizontally and season with garam masala and 1 teaspoon salt. Zest and juice the limes into a small bowl. Add 2 tablespoons oil and whisk to combine; season to taste with salt and pepper.

4. Cook chicken
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Working in 2 batches, cook chicken until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Return first batch of chicken to the skillet and remove from heat; add lime dressing and turn chicken to coat.  

5. Make yogurt sauce
Whisk yogurt and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.

6. Broil naan
Preheat broiler to high. Place naan directly on oven rack and broil until warmed through, about 1 minute. Brush naan with oil, season with salt and pepper, and tear or cut in half. Add mint to relish. Serve chicken with relish, yogurt sauce and naan. Enjoy!
