  • About

I like to use boned chicken leg or thigh for this as the flavour is better and the meat more juicy than a breast. If quinces aren’t available, use poached pears instead.

Ingredients

  • 2 boned chicken legs or 4 thighs
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • 2 naan breads, 10 cm(4 in) across
  • 4 tablespoons hummus
  • 1 handful lambslettuce or similar greens
  • ½ spiced poached quince, sliced

Method

Season chicken well and cook in a frying pan (or on a barbecue) in a little oil, skin-side down, until golden brown. Turn over and cook with a lid on (if possible) until cooked through – about 6-8 minutes altogether.

Warm naan in the oven or on the gentlest part of the barbecue and split them open, but keep one edge intact. Divide the hummus between the naan, add some lettuce and sliced quince, then tuck the chicken in and press down lightly.
