It all started with a traditional picnic basket I inherited from a close friend. I was so determined to use it, yet summers came and went and the picnic basket lay all alone in my basement storage. This year I was determined to use it and make it the star of the show in my photos and videos. With a great picnic basket comes great responsibility and I knew that the sandwiches it carried needed to be amazing! These Tandoori Chicken rolls are packed with flavor and are the perfect size to eat at a picnic.


This recipe starts with perfectly grilled Tandoori Chicken and is made into a spread enhanced with fried onions and coriander.
