Method
  • 1. FOR THE MARINADE

    Heat oven to 220c

    First dice your chicken breast into roughly 3cm dice and place in a bowl. Peel and chop your garlic and zest the lemon placing both into the bowl with the chicken, reserving the lemon juice until later.

    Mix the yoghurt, spices and salt into the bowl with the chicken. Skewer the chicken onto bamboo sticks and place on a baking tray in the oven and cook for 8-12 min until cooked through. When the chicken comes out of the oven finish with the juice of the lemon.

  • 2. FOR THE GARNISH

    While the chicken is in the oven, finely slice the red onion, toss with a pinch of salt and leave to one side to wilt. Quarter the tomatoes, de-seed and finely slice the chilli, zest and juice the lemon, pick and chop the coriander. Mix everything together along with the red onion. Season to taste. Serve alongside the kebab with a toasted pitta bread.

Chef's tip

«Baking the skewers in the oven, rather than cooking on a grill will create a nice crust on the yoghurt and keep the chicken nice and moist.»
