Marinated Chicken: (alternative is Woolworths chicken kebabs)

  • 700g of chicken (1 pack of 4 breasts)
  • 1 cup greek yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 large clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp thyme

Add all the ingredients to a bowl or clear plastic bag and leave it to chill in the fridge for more than an hour.


  • 1/2 cucumber, grated
  • 1 cup plain greek yoghurt
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil

Once you have grated the cucumber, put the cucumber into a clean dishcloth and squeeze all the juices out. Once complete combine all ingredients into a bowl, taste, and then put it into the fridge to chill.


  • 1 medium grated carrot
  • 2 diced tomatoes
  • 1 diced small red onion

Flatbread: (alternative is to buy flatbreads from Gorimas)
