Units Scale

For the chicken:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

For the Chilli Mint Yogurt:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno or other chilli pepper (red or green), chopped small
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint


  1. Chop your chicken into chunks and add it to a mixing bowl. Sprinkle over the salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, and dried oregano and give it a stir. Then add in the lemon juice and olive oil and stir again to coat all the chicken pieces. You can do this ahead of time and put the chicken in the fridge for a few hours or just leave it to marinate on the counter while you heat up your grill and make your yogurt sauce.
  2. To make the chili mint yogurt, simply add the yogurt to a small mixing bowl and add your green onions, jalapeno, garlic, and fresh mint. Fold this all together with a spoon or spatula and stash it in the fridge until you're ready to eat.
  3. When you're ready to cook your chicken, thread your chicken pieces on to skewers, leaving a sliver of space between each piece to allow the chicken to cook more evenly. Place your skewers on a hot grill and cook for about three minutes on each side. Allow the chicken to rest for about five minutes before serving.
  4. Serve this with pita or flatbread, your favorite chopped veg, and plenty of that spicy, herby chilli mint yogurt.
