Main Pita Wraps Header

Steamed Pita Pocket stuffed with Vegetables & Hot Tandoori Chicken sauced with that Mayosa Sauce for a seriously good Tandoori Chicken Pita Pocket. Make this with leftover Tandoori Chicken or Kebabs.

I usually make extras whenever making Tandoori Chicken. Just so I can use the leftovers for this wrap, Tandoori Salads, or Tandoori Noodles and other dishes.

Can you use Naan Bread instead? You sure can, just place the ingredients on the Naan Bread and Enjoy.

Tandoori Chicken Pita Pocket Ingredients

The ingredients come together with a mix of Salad Vegetables, Seasoned with Tandoori Masala, drizzled with Mayosa Sauce and topped with reheated leftover or freshly cooked Tandoori Chicken.

Salad Vegetables

Wash and prepare the following Vegetables for the Salad Filling. Mix everything in a Salad bowl and use for the Vegetable Filling. Add in other vegetables like Napa Cabbage or Carrots if desired.

Tandoori Chicken Pita Pocket Salad

Salad Vegetables

  • Lettuce (Iceberg & Butter Crunch Lettuce)
  • Red Onions
  • Cucumber
  • Bell Pepper
  • Tomato

Mayosa Sauce

Mayosa Sauce is a combination of Hellmann’s Mayo & Samosa Sauce. This is a really good sauce that is also used on the Tandoori Chicken Burger. It can be used for a Creamy version of the Tandoori Chicken Salad as the main Dressing with some Tandoori Chicken using either the Mayo or Yogurt as the base sauce.

Red Samosa Dipping Sauce

Samosa Dipping Sauce

Make up the Samosa Dipping Sauce first and let it cool. It takes about 10 minutes to make it.

After it is cool, combine the 1-2 Tbl of Samosa Dipping Sauce to 1/4 C of Hellmann’s Mayo and mix well for Mayosa Sauce.

Tandoori Masala

Use Tandoori Masala to make the Tandoori Chicken and to season the Wrap. Once the Pita Bread is stuffed with the Vegetables, shake on some of that JAH Tandoori Masala.

The Tandoori Masala is the Seasoning used on top of the Vegetables instead of Salt & Pepper. It just really kicks it up a notch.

Tandoori Chicken

This recipe usually uses Leftover Tandoori Chicken. Although this can be made up with fresh cooked Tandoori Chicken too. Use 1 Chicken Quarter, 3 Drumsticks, or 2 Thighs for each Wrap. Optionally, use 1 lbs. Chicken Breast for both wraps, either cooked whole, sliced in half horizontally and grilled or cubed for Tandoori Kebabs.
