This fakeaway chicken kebab recipe is a fab meal for anyone on a kick up the arse weight lose diet, specialty dietary requirement option or just someone fancying a decent bit of grub !.It’s a super easy dish to prepare, and you can often spot chicken breast wearing a reduced sticker. I picked up this chicken for a silly price at The Co-Op and paired with some rice ,salad and some wraps or pitta, this can make a frugal change to the regular table offerings. A good tip with this dish is to marinate the chicken overnight, so the flavours really do penetrate the meat and give it an excellent flavour !. Lidl do the best olive oil for a fab price and this is great to add to the spices.
Make this even more frugal by making your own flatbreads to wrap the chicken in and you are on your way to Jamie Oliver Status. Make a real low fat mint dressing with this by adding a spoonful of dried mint, canderel , a pinch of salt and a drop of water to some fat free natural yogurt and mix into a flavoured sauce.
You will need…..
3/4 diced chicken breast
20ml of olive oil
1tsp chilli flakes
1tsp garlic paste
2 tsp tomatoe puree
Salt and pepper
Mix all the ingredients with the chicken and massage in well. Again try and let the meat mingle with the spices, cover and pop in the fridge for a while or overnight !
Slide the chicken onto a skewer and cook under the grill for around 10 minutes. (Cut a large piece of chicken open to check that the meat is not still pink)
If you have time on your hands, put the chicken into a foil parcel and put it into a hot oven to part cook it, then finish off the cooking under a hot grill, this will make the meat a lot moister.
Serve with rice, bread or if you fancy being super healthy, a big salad.
