Spicy Indian Pulled Chicken Wrap
with minty yogurt and cucumber sauce

Active: 20 min Total: 25 min
We're putting last night's leftover chicken to good use and building flavorful chicken wraps. Worried about the spice? Don't be! The minty yogurt sauce will leave you cool as a cucumber.
Smarts: Can't find naan? Pita bread or flour tortillas are a fine substitution.

Family really liked this recipe. We ended up using chicken thighs, and adding garlic to the yogurt sauce. We never ended up eating the dependent meal and just doubled up on the curry chicken for lunches. Was able to add just enough of the cooking liquid to keep the chicken from being dry.

I added this to my menu, but the instructions don't say how to cook the chicken, so I'm wasting lots of time trying to figure that out. I tried reading some other comments for a hint and see you where already told this was an issue back on Mar 28, 2015.

I really wanted and expected to love this one. The flavors were all fantastic. However, the texture of the chicken ruined it for me. The leftover pulled chicken turned to mush when heated.

I wish there was a more middle ground option. This was decent, just not one of my faves, since there have been so many good recipes.
