Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, mix the tzatziki, chopped cilantro, cardamom, and coriander. Add 1 to 2 tbsp. water if needed to loosen the sauce; season with salt and pepper.

  • In a medium deep skillet with a lid, heat the oil over medium-high. Season the chicken and add to the skillet. Cook the chicken until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Pour the tikka masala sauce over the chicken. Bring to a simmer. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer the chicken, turning once, until cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board; using 2 forks, shred into bitesize pieces. Return the chicken to the sauce to keep warm.

  • In a skillet over high heat or over a gas flame on the stovetop, using tongs, char the tortillas, turning often, about 15 seconds per side.

  • Divide the chicken among the tortillas. Top with the tzatziki sauce, cucumber, and onion. Garnish with cilantro leaves and the chile.
