What Do You Need For Chicken and Apple in Naan Sandwich?

This sandwich is a chicken and apple salad that is stuffed into a folded piece of Naan. I use a homemade honey mustard dressing. However, if you like more savory than sweet, use a mayonnaise-based dressing for the sandwich.  

Apples:  The apples can be sweet or tart, grated, chopped or thinly sliced.

Chicken:  Use a chicken breast, or if you are making this for more than 2-3 people, you may want to use a rotisserie chicken. I love the simplicity of using a rotisserie chicken. 

Honey Mustard Dressing:  Honey, Dijon Mustard, seasoning, olive oil.

Optional Ingredients:  Celery (Farmer Fred’s Favorite), walnuts or pecans, grapes.  

Lettuce:  Romaine or Red lettuce, No iceberg, please.

Here is How to Make Chicken and Apple In Naan:

This recipe is another SIS (simple is smart) recipe.  To make this sandwich:

  1.  Make the Honey Mustard Dressing by mixing all of the ingredients together and set aside. 
  2. Grate the apples.  If you dice the apples, they are 
  3. Grill a chicken breast or use rotisserie chicken if you have some.  Dice it up. 
  4. Chop the lettuce or leave the leaves whole.


Add a generous amount of lettuce to 1/2 of the Naan. Don’t skimp on the lettuce as it acts as a moisture barrier to the salad.  If you grated the apples, they will be juicier than if you dice them.   Add the salad and top with a drizzle of the honey mustard.  Fold the Naan together to form the sandwich.   This sandwich is best if assembled just before it is eaten.
