Curried Orange Chicken Naan Sandwiches

Tender chicken simmers in this Florida orange juice and curry sauce mixture to absorb all the flavour. The fresh crunch of spinach is the perfect match for the chicken in the tender naan bread. A great new lunch idea or perfect for a light dinner with soup or salad.
