Indian spiced chicken baguette

Indian spiced chicken baguette

It’s not often that I have a sandwich these days, but before I started my lean journey it wasn’t unusual for me to mindlessly eat a sandwich, any sandwich with crisps.

Nowadays, a sandwich for me is something to look forward to and I put much more effort into the filling.


This is one of the many recipes I created when I followed the 90 Day Plan by The Body Coach. Simply use your plans ingredient amounts instead of those shown in the recipe. There are 220 Create Your Own (CYO) friendly recipes in my app and on this website.

Ingredients for 1 serving

277 g chicken breast
95 g cherry tomatoes
46 g spring onion, finely chopped
1-2 tsp garam masala
6 g coconut oil
1 lemon wedge
5 g fresh parsley, finely chopped
7 inch piece of baguette
25 ml sweet chilli sauce
149 g mixed salad leaves
salt and pepper

Method

  • Put a frying pan onto a medium heat and add your coconut oil.
  • Cut your chicken breast in half to reduce its thickness – this will help it cook quicker – and coat it in the garam masala.
  • Cook the chicken until it’s cooked through, it will be firm to the touch when ready and set aside.
  • Finely chop the cherry tomatoes and put them into a bowl with the spring onion and finely chopped parsley to make your chunky salsa.
  • Add a squeeze of lemon and stir thoroughly to combine the ingredients
  • Cut your baguette in half and arrange the salad leaves and onion on top.
  • Before you remove the chicken from the pan, give it a squeeze of lemon as this is going to lift the flavour and arrange it on top of the salad leaves.
  • Top with your sweet chilli or chutney and chunky salsa to the plate and dig in!

Recipe Notes

  • For those on 2018 BC plans, sweet chilli sauce is a swap for other side sauces provided you choose one with equivalent macros.
  • For anyone following older BC plans and are on Cycle 3 – if you don’t have bread in your plan you should enquire to see if you may have it added to your ingredients list. It’s unusual for it to be refused, but check first.
  • A piece of baguette has been used in place of a bagel.
  • For anyone following BC plans I used lime and chilli chutney as shown in the picture but feel free to stick to sweet chilli sauce. To use the chutney, simply look at the macros for your sweet chilli sauce amount and use the equivalent of the chutney to stay on plan.
