Ordered for a large party and you have leftover chicken tikka? It’s a blessing in disguise. There are a number of super creative ways to utilise that leftover chicken. You can make sandwiches, chicken cutlets, salad, and so much more; the options are endless.

Here are four delicious ways to use spare chicken tikka:

Make a sandwich

Chicken tikka slices make a delicious sandwich. All you have to do is de bone, slice up your chicken and mix it with some mayonnaise, mustard and cream. Add fresh herbs and thinly sliced onions and spread it on your choice of bread. You can also add some cucumbers, carrots and tomatoes for that extra crunch.

Put it on pizza

This is perhaps the easiest way to use your chicken. If you find making a pizza too daunting or time consuming, pita bread will suffice in speeding things up. Spread some pizza sauce on the pita bread, add some chopped vegetables including capsicums, onions and tomatoes. Add sliced up chicken tikka pieces, and olives and mushrooms as per your preference. Finally, top with mozzarella cheese and you have a pizza ready to bake.

Add it to pasta

Prepare your tomato sauce for the pasta and add the sliced chicken bits right at the end. Stir in boiled pasta and enjoy with some fresh mozzarella on top. You can also use it in a pasta salad.

Make a wrap

You can go eastern or western with this one. Make a burrito or make a desi-style wrap with chutney. For a burrito, layer some chopped green pepper, onions, tomatoes and red beans on tortilla. Add the chicken tikka slices and your choice of sauces. You can also add sliced avocado. Wrap it up and enjoy.
