For the butter chicken dip:

  • 1/2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Onion, chopped
  • 1/2 Tbsp Fresh Garlic minced.
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup Crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup Plain low fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro, diced
  • 1 Cup Shredded Chicken (85g)

For the Naan: *

  • 1/2 Cup + 2 Tbsp Cornstarch (88g) **
  • 1/4 Cup Oat flour (GF if needed) (30g)
  • 3 Tbsp White rice flour (28g)
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp GF Xantham gum
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic infused olive oil
  • 7 Tbsp Unsweetened almond milk


  • Mix the cornstarch, oat flour, rice flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Make a well in the center and add in the oil and milk. Stir until it comes together.
  • Use your hands to knead the dough about 10 times in the bowl, until it forms a smooth ball. Set aside to rest while you make the dip.
  • Preheat the olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat.
  • Add in the onion and garlic and cook until they just begin to soften, about 2 minutes.
  • Add in the cumin, paprika, garam masala, and salt. Stir until well combined.
  • Sautee the onion and spice mixture until the onions are soft and the spices are fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  • Turn the heat down to low and add in the crushed tomato, Greek yogurt, diced cilantro and the shredded chicken.
  • Stir until everything is well combined and transfer to a serving dish.
  • Divide the naan dough into 4 sections and roll each with a rolling pin until about 1/8 inch thick. You can lightly flour the counter if the dough begins to stick.
  • Lightly spray a large pan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.
  • Place one or two naans (depending on the size of your pan) in the pan and cook until it darkens in spot on the underside, about 1 to 2 minutes. You can lightly press it down with a spatula so it cooks evenly.
  • Flip and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Repeat with remaining sections and then serve with the butter chicken dip.


*This is a quick Naan, so it won't be as fluffy and bubbly as the traditional kind!
