My boys love the delicious stove-top pull apart Tandoori chicken in a delicious flat bread and the chicken is even better the next day. On a work day, if you throw all the ingredients in a slow cooker, you could come home to one delicious hot Pull Apart Chicken Tandoori. If I was using a slow cooker for the chicken, I might hold off on putting the dairy free coconut plain yogurt in until you came home and then finish off the dish.

It is in between season here in Hong Kong. Yesterday it was 20 degrees C and today it is only 10 degrees C so you really need to take care and nourish your body. Turmeric, cumin, chili and paprika are all warming spices when it is cold and damp outside you need to be warmed from the inside out. Turmeric is frequently used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat migrating aches and inflammation that is made worse by the cold and damp weather. I think I need a double dose for sure.

  • Cook: 1 hr
  • Yields: 4 Adults

Ingredients

Sweet Potato Skins

Sweet Potatoes - 4 whole washed and dried

coconut oil - 1 tablespoon (Or olive oil or oil of choice)

Pull Apart Chicken Tandoori

coconut oil - 1 tablespoon (or olive oil or oil of choice)

onion - 1/2 cup finely chopped

garlic - 2-3 finely chopped

chili peppers - 1 mild Chinese chili (or fresh chili pepper of choice- can exchange with dried chili flakes to desired heat level)

chicken breasts - 5 (boneless skinless half breasts cleaned and fat removed)

tumeric - 1 heaping teaspoon

cumin - 1 heaping teaspoon

paprika - 1 heaping teaspoon

salt and pepper - to taste

Gluten-Free Chicken Broth - 1 cup

Plain (coconut) Low Fat Yogurt - 1/2 cup (and a little to drizzle the dish with to garnish)

cilantro (coriander) - 2 tablespoons chopped to garnish (optional)

Directions

1Preheat oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F).

2Bake your Sweet Potatoes. Place your whole sweet potatoes on a lined baking tray. Rub your whole sweet potatoes with coconut oil or oil of choice. Bake your whole sweet potatoes for about 45 minute to 1 hour or until you can easily pierce your fork or knife into the middle without resistance. Remove from oven, keep warm and set aside.

3In the time while your sweet potatoes are baking, Cook your chicken tandoori.  Place your oil of choice in a large frying pan, add you onions and garlic and sauté until translucent on medium heat. sprinkle your turmeric, cumin, paprika and salt and pepper on both sides of your clean and dry boneless and skinless chicken breasts. Add your chicken breasts to the pan and cook on each side for just about 2 minutes to seal in the juices. Then turn your heat down to a simmer and add your gluten free chicken broth and put a lid. Simmer your tandoori chicken slowly on the stove top for about 50 minutes to one hour or when the chicken easily pulls apart with a fork.

4Pull chicken apart with 2 forks and add the plain (coconut) low fat yogurt and mix well.

5Assembly. Cut your sweet potatoes in half and scoop out just a little bit of the sweet potato so you can pile a few scoops of your delicious tandoori chicken. Drizzle a little of the plain (coconut) low fat yogurt on top and cilantro and enjoy.
