Ingredients
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric, a palmful
  • 1 tablespoon coriander
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin, 1/2 a palmful
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom, 1/3 palmful
  • 1 lime, zested
  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 green apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced into matchsticks
  • 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and very thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 4 pieces naan bread, plain or flavored, store-bought, warmed
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

  • Combine the yogurt with the spices and zest of lime in a large bowl.

  • Cut the chicken into large chunks and season liberally with salt and pepper. Add to the yogurt mixture and toss to coat evenly. Put a small wire rack on a baking sheet or a slotted broiler pan. Arrange the chicken on the rack or slotted pan and roast until charred at the edges and juices run clear, about 15 minutes.

  • Combine the apple, tomatoes and scallions in a serving bowl. Add the lime juice, oil, and salt and pepper, to taste, and toss to combine.

  • Transfer the chicken to a serving platter and serve with apple-tomato topping and warm bread.
