For the naan, combine 125ml of warm water with yeast and honey and leave for 5 mins for the rest to activate. Then combine flour with a tsp of salt in a mixing bowl and create a well using the end of a wooden spoon or spatula. Add greek yoghurt and yeast mixture to the well and gradually whisk the flour in from the sides.
Once combined, knead on a lightly floured surface for five mins, then cover and set aside for one hour, until the dough has doubled in size.
Divide your dough 6 balls and shape into naans using your hands on a lightly floured surface.
Heat a non-stick pan to a very high heat and place your naan on the pan. Cook on each side for 3-4 mins, brushing with some coconut oil each side.
For the chicken tikka, place all tikka marinade ingredients in a blender or food processor and bliss until smooth. Then transfer marinade to a bowl with chicken breast and mix in until chicken is completely coated. You can chose to marinade your chicken at this point if you have time, if not go straight to the griddle.
Heat your griddle to a high heat and add your chicken. Leave to grill for 5 mins before you start flipping your chicken. Brush coconut oil over your chicken throughout this process.
To serve, add chicken tikka to naans. Top with greek yoghurt, coriander and red onion slices and fold your naan into a delicious chicken tikka naan roll.
