    To be honest it’s a bit bland but it’s quick and very easy to make. I used vegan cheese as my husband is lactose intolerant, takes about 13 minutes in the oven. Really fills you up but probably will tweak the recipe next time

    pretty good, kids liked it and that's saying something. I think the oven time is a little too long so take it out earlier or watch it, but besides that will make again.

    I really enjoyed this easy recipe. The few things I did different was use bigger naan, only heated it for 9 minutes at 400F. Tasted Great

    Used smaller naan bread- very good lunch for kids. Make sure to lessen cook time 14 mins makes crust very crunchy.

    What a brilliant dinner! So many different varieties to make. I made mine with pitta bread and homemade pesto, mushrooms, mozzarella and coriander. Went down a treat and will definitely make again. :-)

    This has become a bimonthly meal in our house. It's so delicious, and we usually can make enough to take for lunch the next day. One of my favorite Yummly discoveries.

    Delicious! I tried this recipe on garlic Naan and added, mushrooms, olives and onions with the chicken and fresh tomatoes. It was a great combination of flavor. My husband enjoyed it very much! For added spice, a pinch of red pepper will do.

    nice and light! a great alternative to heavy take out pizzas. I'm going to try adding olive or a bit of onion to the chicken as It was a tiny bit dry all around I would have it again :)
