Chicken Kebab

  • 4 skinless, chicken fillets, cubed
  • 4 teaspoon za’atar
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 2 lemons to halve for garnish

To Serve

  • 8 bought mini pitas
  • Flat leaf parsley, a bunch


  1. Wrap the pitas in foil and put into 200 degree oven for 10 minutes to warm
  2. Combine the za’atar, garlic and olive oil and pour over the chicken. Toss to combine
  3. Thread the chicken onto metal skewers, with a folded slice of lemon in between each piece. Each breast makes two so 8 kebabs
  4. Heat griddle and cook the chicken for 6-8 minutes, 3-4 minutes on each side – rotating and pressing down the skewers to make sure they cook evenly.
  5. Remove from heat and put on a platter – if you are not using straight away, cover with foil. Garnish with halved lemons and a bunch of parsley.
