Open-Face Chicken Curry Naan
Total Time:
25 mins

Yes, this meal is ready in a snap. But that doesn't mean you have to compromise on flavor. This chicken dinner is in fact bursting with fresh, bright, spiced flavors, thanks to red curry paste, fresh lime juice, and serrano chile. A generous dollop of yogurt is stirred in at the end for added richness and creaminess. For perfectly warmed and pliant naan, brush the flatbread with oil and place it in a hot oven until it's warmed and toasted, which takes just a few minutes. Or if you have a gas range, place the naan directly over the flame and flip with tongs until the bread is charred on both sides.


  • 1 cup shredded cabbage

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 2 limes), divided

  • teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • 2  tablespoons canola oil, divided

  • 1 1/2 lb. ground chicken

  • 1/4 cup red curry paste

  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced serrano chile

  • 3/4 cup plain whole-milk yogurt, divided

  • 4 naan flatbreads (such as Stonefire), toasted

  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion

  • Chopped fresh mint, for garnish


  1. Toss together cabbage, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add chicken and break into large pieces with a wooden spoon. Cook, undisturbed, until bottom is lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Cook, stirring, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Drain chicken in a colander. (Do not wipe skillet clean.)

  3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in skillet over medium. Add curry paste and chile; cook, stirring constantly, until very fragrant, about 2 minutes. Return chicken to skillet; stir to coat in curry paste mixture. Stir in 1/4 cup yogurt and remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice and 3/4 teaspoon salt. Remove from heat.

  4. Top flatbreads with chicken curry, cabbage mixture, onion, and remaining 1/2 cup yogurt. Garnish with mint; fold over.
