Chicken Tikka Masala Flatbread

Serving Size: 4-6
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 lb chicken breasts, cut into small bite-size pieces
  • Spice blend: 2 teaspoons ground cumin, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon ground coriander, 1 teaspoon turmeric, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 flatbreads (you could also use naan, pita, pizza crust, or cauliflower crust)
  • Jar of tikka masala sauce (I use a 15 ounce jar for two 6″x12″ flatbreads)
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced into small strips
  • 1-2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 green onions, diced (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Heat butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Begin sautéing chicken and sprinkle evenly with spice blend.
  2. After about 5 minutes, add yellow onion to the skillet and sauté for 3-5 more minutes. Stirring frequently, cook until chicken and onions are golden brown and chicken is just about cooked through (no more pink). During the last 1-2 minutes of cooking, add spinach to the skillet to wilt down.
  3. Meanwhile, line two pans with foil and place one flatbread onto each. Spread as much sauce as you like on each flatbread.
  4. Top each flatbread with cheese, chicken, onions, and spinach.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned and crispy. Sprinkle with cilantro and green onions if desired. Enjoy!
