Chicken Tikka Naan Pizzas

Chicken Tikka Pizza

When I closed out Wing Month with some chicken tikka wings, I remembered that I never shared this recipe for a chicken tikka naan pizza I made a couple years ago now. At the time, I had tried out two naan pizza ideas, one with paneer and the other with chicken, and the paneer was a clear favorite among the crowd, so I got the recipe up pretty quickly, but the chicken tikka incarnation was nearly as delicious and is totally deserving of its own post. So without further ado, enjoy this very tasty grilled chicken tikka naan pizza!

Chicken Tikka Wings

Chicken Tikka Wings

Wing Month is my favorite time of year on this blog and it's always hard to put it to rest. This year that's a little easier due to how the calendar falls—we all get to enjoy a bonus wing recipe! I saved a good, and decidedly different, one to close out our 2020 wing extravaganza with this Indian chicken tikka wings recipe. I developed the marinade a while back for a more standard chicken tikka recipe that utilized breast meat, but wings are so much tastier, which I think made this the superior tikka incarnation that you have to try.

Naan Pizza with Spiced Paneer

Naan Pizza with Spiced Paneer

Sometimes I'm left wondering—when does a recipe cross a line from doable to too daunting for the average home cook? These naan pizzas with a spiced paneer serve as a good example of that question being brought to the top of my mind. I made them at a pizza-themed Meatwave and they were the biggest hit I had of the day, so it was a no brainer they'd be slated for a spot on the blog. When I began writing up the recipe though, the long laundry list of ingredients and multitude of steps the the final recipe required became more clear as I wrote everything down in its final format, leaving me to question if anyone would ever try making these themselves at all. In the end, I even left off an entire sauce I had used in my pizza to try to condense things down a bit, although I'm not sure I did myself any favors really. So I'll let you judge for yourself whether these "pizzas" are worth all that goes into them—I know for myself, the answer was a resounding yes!

Indian-spiced Ribs

Indian-spiced Ribs

I view ribs much in the way I do chicken—a blank slate just waiting for any type of introduction of flavor. Ribs offer me a great way to experiment with rub and sauce pairings, and my love for that can clearly be traced by venturing through my now twenty-plus rib recipes I've amassed. I feel like no matter what theme my Meatwaves take on, I can always think of a rib recipe that could fit in. While crafting an Indian-inspired menu for a cookout last year, I made a bet that I could use all the spices that were seasoning my chicken and veggies and put them together into a rib recipe that would be both awesome and like none other I've done before, and that's exactly what I got with these Indian-spiced ribs.

Chicken Tikka Kati Rolls

Chicken Tikka Kati Roll

Sometimes I wonder if sharing a recipe like these chicken tikka kati rolls is an exercise in futility—would anyone else take the time I did to make two sauces, bread, and tandoori chicken for what is essentially street food? My hope is the answer is yes, and that my choice not to lessen the time or effort to make these Indian rolls, that can be consumed as a snack or meal, results in at least one other person making them as good as they can be, which is how I would describe them after working through the recipe and giving it the Meatwave stamp of approval.
