Home style chicken kebab

Home style chicken kebab

Ok I admit it, I love a chicken kebab.  Not one of those with unrecognisable meat, but one that’s lovely chunks of chicken that’s been marinated all day.  When I’m in the mood and that’s normally at the weekend I like to have this one lined up.  To recreate that lovely flavour you will have to marinate the chicken for at least 2 hours, but more would be better!

Ingredients for 1 serving

277g chicken breast, chopped into chunks
52g peppers, cut into cubes
46g onions, chopped
2 large tortilla wraps
6g olive oil
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 lemon, juice only
1 garlic clove, chopped or crushed
10g fresh coriander, chopped
48ml sweet chilli sauce
149g salad leaves
salt and pepper

 (Example ingredient amounts given, adjust accordingly to your requirements)

Method

  • Put the chicken chunks to a bowl.
  • Add the olive oil, smoked paprika, dried oregano, lemon juice, crushed  garlic and season.
  • Leave this to maninate for as long as possible.  I like to leave this for the day in the fridge.
  • When you’re ready to cook, pre-heat your oven to 190°C fan/400°F and line a baking sheet with non stick foil.
  • Arrange the chicken pieces onto the lined baking sheet and bake the chicken for approximately 20 minutes until cooked through.
  • Add the chopped peppers and onion and bake for another 5 minutes to soften the peppers and onion.
  • The chicken is ready when it is firm to the touch.
  • Warm your tortilla wraps and them put on a plate.
  • Pop the chicken, peppers and onion onto the bread along with the juice and top with the greens.
  • Add a dollop of sweet chilli sauce and remember this is totally lean!!!

Notes

  • For those on 2018 BC plans, sweet chilli sauce is a swap for other side sauces provided you choose one with equivalent macros.
  • I like to vary the greens in this recipe dependant on what I have in the fridge.  The image shows a combination of salad leaves and red cabbage.
  • The red cabbage I use has no added sugar.
  • The longer you leave the chicken to marinate, the better!
