Chicken shish kebabs

These simple yogurt-marinated chicken shish kebabs take just 35 minutes to make

  1. Put 100g yogurt in a bowl with 2 of the crushed garlic cloves, the cumin, 1 tsp smoked paprika, ½ tsp oregano and half the lemon juice and zest. Season, then add the chicken and toss well to coat.
  2. Preheat a large griddle pan or the grill to high. Skewer the chicken onto 4 long or 8 short metal skewers. Griddle (or grill on a baking tray) for 10-15 mins, turning regularly, until charred and cooked through. Remove from the pan and griddle or grill the lemon slices for 1-2 mins each side.

  3. Toast the pittas, then split open and stuff with the lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes. Mix the remaining yogurt and garlic with a little of the remaining lemon juice and zest; top with remaining paprika and oregano, then season. Add the chicken to the pittas and drizzle over the sauce. Serve with the griddled lemon slices.
