This Navajo Flat Bread with Chicken is similar with an indian bread, but not identical. Navajo is cooked in a little bit of oil on the grill or in a skillet and it`s thicker than the indian one. You can serve it along anything, with a salad, with a soup ( the way i did ), with grilled chicken and cheese. And if you don`t wanna eat meat, serve it with a good omlette.
- 1.32 pounds flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon dry seasonings ( rosemary, parsley, thyme)
- 6 tablespoons oil
- 150 ml warm water
- The ingredients are for 10 pieces.
- In a big bowl , mix the flour, the salt, the baking powder and the seasonings (you can use other dry spices, depending of what you like)
- Add the oil (you can use canola or olive oil), mix everything and make a little whole in the center so you can add the water there. Using a fork, mix slowly, taking a little bit of the flour and mix it until you get a nice dough.
- Then sprinkle some flour on a wood board and knee the dough on it.If the dough is to dry, add some water, if it is to soft add some flour.
- After 5 minutes, place the dough in a bowl and cover it with a towel. Let it sit in a warm place for 15 minutes.
- Then cut the dough in 10 equal pieces and knee every one of it making little balls.
- Add a little bit of oil on your hands and make a pancake shape out of it, 0.40 inches thick.
- Place a pancake pan or a thick pan on heat and cook the bread. You don`t have to add oil.
- Fry them on each side. The bread needs to be cooked even in the middle.
I let them cook at low heat for more than 10 minutes.
- It is important that you cook them using a good pan and they won`t overcook if you will cook them at low heat.
- This way they`re gonna be cooked all the way.
- Serve them when they`re hot. You can reheat them if you like.
- For the grilled chicken you ll need salt and pepper to season the sliced chicken. Then add 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet and fry the chicken on both sides until they become golden brown.
- Cut one navajo bread in half, then add the chicken , then one slice of cheese and serve it right away.
