Tandoori Chicken & Mango Pizza – so easy!

Who doesn’t love Pizza? It is a good standby: quick & easy to throw together, the kids all eat it without complaint, and you can pretty much put anything on a pizza base! Of course making fresh pizza bases is the ultimate with a pizza – and I do this on the weekend using the bread maker. But like all sensible working woman I also have a couple of bases on standby in the refrigerator!

Tonight I had some chicken I had cooked the night before in a tandoori paste in a plastic container, and wondered if that would make a good topping for a pizza?

But what goes with tandoori chicken? Caramalised onion? Some sort of fruit maybe?

I always have caramelised onion as a pantry staple, it is very easy to make, keeps well and can be used in a variety of ways. Here is the recipe I make. It is from Annabel LangbeinĀ . I’m sure she won’t mind sharing her recipe with you all šŸ™‚

Prep time:10 mins Cook time:30 mins Makes:about 3 cups
6 red or brown onions, peeled and finely slicedIMG_0830
1 cup water
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp each butter and sugar
1 tsp each salt and finely chopped rosemary leaves
Combine all ingredients in a pot, cover and cook on medium heat for 15 minutes. Remove the lid and cook, stirring now and then, until all the water has evaporated and the onions are just starting to stick on the bottom (about 15 minutes). Allow to cool. Store in a jar in the fridge for up to a week.

Anyway back to the pizza šŸ™‚

  • 1 pizza base or naan bread if you have?
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup caramelised onions
  • 150g (or thereabouts) of tandori basted & grilled chicken
  • 1 can of mangoes! Well it seemed like a good taste match!
  • Mozarrella cheese – small handful

Smooth the tomato paste over the base, splash the onion all over, top with the chicken. Add sliced mango decoratively! and then sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the top! Voila !! Fan bake for 15mins.

The man of the house gave this the ‘thumbs up’ and not just because he was hungry! It was tasty with the mango complimenting the tasteĀ of the tandoriĀ chicken – a dollop of creme Ā freche and a glass of red wine! Who could ask for anything more on a Tuesday evening after a long day in the office…

Happy Cooking!

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I live in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. I started my cooking blog as a hobby during my 'gap year' - 'lessonstodate' to share my family recipes and some personal accounts that come with being a mum, and grandmother - and corporate worker. My love of taking photos had taken a back-seat but recently after spending time on my own while my husband travelled, I found myself picking up my camera again. It really is good company! Looking out at the world and watching it unfold; you don't have to participate in it, just watch and wonder. Sharon
