How to make Cheesy Grilled Sandwich With Smoked Chicken Recipe
To begin making the Cheesy Grilled Sandwich With Smoked Chicken, we will firstlymake the Stove Top Grilled And Smoked Tandoori Chicken.
*To make the Stove Top Grilled And Smoked Tandoori Chicken Recipe
Clean, wash and make 1 inch slits on Chicken thighs on both sides and keep aside.
Mix all the ingredients mentioned in 'marination' including curd, ginger, garlic, lemon juice, garam masala powder, kashmiri red chilli powder, salt, mustard oil and coriander powder in a large bowl to make a smooth paste.
Add chicken thighs in it and rub the marinade nicely all over the pieces. Cling wrap the bowl and refrigerate it for minimum 3-4 hours. (Over night marination gives much more amazing results)
Heat some mustard oil in a grilling pan and place the marinated chicken thighs and allow them to cook till they get charred.
Carefully flip the chicken and cook from another side as well.
Brush some butter in top while the chicken is grilling.
Once the chicken is soft, juicy, charred and nicely cooked, transfer it in a broad, wide base bowl.
Place the chicken on the sides of the bowl and a small steel bowl covered with aluminium foil in the centre.
Take a piece of charcoal and hold it on fire with the help of a tong.
As soon as the charcoal starts burning place it in the small bowl.
Take 1 tablespoon of ghee and pour on the burning charcoal immediately and close the lid such that all the smoke remain inside the bowl.
Keep the lid closed and open only when you are ready to serve. After it is fully ready, shred the chicken and keep it aside.
*To make the Grilled Sandwich
Heat the grill sandwich maker. Alternatively, if you do not have the grill sandwich maker, you can either use the grill pan or a griddle (tawa).
Place two slices of bread next to each other, spread butter on one slice and green chutney on the other.
On one of the slices, arrange the cheese slice, shredded smoked tandoori chicken and close the sandwich with the other slice.
Grease the griller generously with butter, and place the sandwich in it and close the grill sandwich maker.
Cook for about 5-7 minutes until the bread slices are crisp and it has turned into a nice brown colour.
