From the Test Kitchen

In this flavorful dish, warm pitas are filled with sautéed onion and bites of chicken coated with warming vadouvan curry powder, which finds cooling contrast from a layer of creamy tzatziki. We’re pairing it with a refreshing side of crisp cabbage dressed with sweet chili sauce and tangy vinegar.

Curry Chicken Pitas with Cucumber Yogurt & Sweet Chili Slaw
Title
  • 10 oz Chopped Chicken Breast
  • 2 Pocketless Pitas
  • 1 Red Onion
  • ½ lb Red Or Green Cabbage
  • 3 Tbsps Sweet Chili Sauce
  • ½ cup Tzatziki (Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce)
  • 2 tsps Vadouvan Curry Powder
  • 1 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 bunch Chives
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

If you prefer to use an oven to warm the pitas instead of a microwave, preheat the oven to 375°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Thinly slice the chives.

Make the slaw:
2 Make the slaw:

In a large bowl, combine the sliced cabbage, sweet chili sauce, and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the chicken & onion:
3 Cook the chicken & onion:

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Place in a bowl and season with salt, pepper, and enough of the curry powder to coat (you may have extra). Toss to thoroughly coat. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and sliced onion in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the chicken is browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat. 

Warm the pitas:
4 Warm the pitas:

Meanwhile, if using the microwave, wrap the pitas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through and pliable. If using the oven, wrap the pitas in foil and place directly onto an oven rack. Warm 7 to 9 minutes, or until heated through and pliable. Transfer the warmed pitas to a work surface and carefully unwrap.

Finish the pitas & serve your dish:
5 Finish the pitas & serve your dish:

Fill the warmed pitas with the tzatziki and cooked chicken and onion. Serve the finished pitas with the slaw on the side. Garnish with the sliced chives. Enjoy!
