Chicken Tandoori Summer Salad | Gustus Vitae

Ingredients

  • 2 pound(s) Chicken Thighs
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon(s) Indian Tandoori Sea Salt
  • 3-4 Persian Cucumbers
  • 2 Heads of Romaine Lettuce
  • 2 Celery Stalks
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2 cup(s) Yogurt (Greek is best, plain unsweetened is fine too)
  • 2 Sprigs of Dill
  • 1 Small Bunch of Cilantro
  • 4 tablespoon(s) Cooking Oil

Instructions

  1. Finely dice cilantro and dill, and combine with yogurt, along with 1 1/2 Tbs of Tandoori Sea Salt.
  2. Wash cucumbers, celery, and lettuce, dicing everything into bite sized pieces.
  3. Dice garlic into fine (the thinner the better) slices, and reserve.
  4. Trim fat from chicken, and dice into small 1" cubes.
  5. Divide yogurt into two bowls - one for the chicken, and one to drizzle on later as dressing.
  6. Dredge chicken in yogurt, cover with cling wrap, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  7. In a large non-stick pan, heat oil on high until just starting to smoke.
  8. Remove chicken from marinade, allowing yogurt to (mostly drip off) and toss in the hot pan, along with garlic slices.
  9. Cook chicken, flipping every few minutes, until thoroughly cooked through. Remove, and allow to cool.
  10. Toss lettuce with other vegetables, mixing in chicken as you do so.
  11. Serve, drizzling with reserved yogurt dill sauce, and dusting with remaining Tandoori Sea Salt.
