This is a quick meal one can have as dinner ...this is a combo of chicken tikka,coriander paste in yogurt and sauted onions.i used whole wheat chapathi to wrap the chicken and yogurt sauce.

for wrapping :
u can use chapathi,tortillas or pita bread.

for making chicken tikka:

chicken breast
2 Tsp tikka masala powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
3 Tsp lemon juice
1 Tsp oil
3 green chillies made into paste
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp paprika(optional)
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp red food color(optional)
1/4 tsp methi ,cumin powder

for sauce

1 cup chopped coriander
handful mint leaves
handful spinach leaves
salt to taste
1 inch piece ginger
2 garlic pods
1/2 cup yogurt

sauting onions:

heat a spoon of oil in a pan.add onions and salt.
saute till transperant .
keep them a side.

yogurt sauce:

blend all the ingredients under sauce .
this show be thick enough to spread on the chapathi.

marinate the chicken with all the ingredients under chicken tikka in the fridgerator for 15 min or 2 hrs.preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
bake it for 20 mintes or till done.
keep it under broil for only a minute.observe the chicken so that it doesn't catch fire.
let it cool and cut into bitesize pieces.

now take a cooked chapathi and spread a big spoon og yogurt mixture .
put some chicken pieces and some sauted onions.
