  • 4 chicken breasts



    While it's the traditional Christmas bird, turkey is good to eat all year round, though…

  • 3 tbsp medium spice piri-piri sauce
  • 300g tub coleslaw
  • 4 pitta breads


  1. Chop the chicken into 2cm cubes and toss in the piri-piri sauce. Heat the grill to high, push the chicken onto four skewers and grill on all sides for 10-12 mins in total or until cooked through and a little charred. Meanwhile, warm the pittas in a toaster.

  2. Slice the pittas in half, stuff with the coleslaw, then slide the chicken from the skewers and add to the pittas.

Extremely easy to make. A firm favourite with my 5 year-old, particularly when it's hot outside and we don't want a heavy dinner. I use wholemeal pittas and we sometimes substitute the peri peri marinade for other things i.e. BBQ, Nando's mango and lime etc. Normally serve it with a salad or potato wedges and dips.
