Ingredients

  • 150ml pot natural yogurt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp medium curry powder or paste
  • pinch chilli powder
  • juice 1 lime
  • 1 garlic clove , crushed
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 red or green pepper , deseeded and cut into large chunks
  • 1 onion , halved and cut into large chunks
  • steamed rice and ready-made raita, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    In a large bowl, mix together the first 6 ingredients and season to taste. Slash the chicken breasts 5-6 times, without cutting all the way through. Add the chicken breasts and vegetables to the yogurt mix and stir to coat everything completely. Cover and leave the flavours to mingle for 10 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Place a griddle over a high heat and cook the chicken and vegetables for 4 mins each side until the chicken is cooked through and the grill lines are golden. Leave to rest for 2 mins before serving with steamed rice and raita.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKING IT WITH RED MEAT, OR MEDITERRANEAN FLAVOURS

Replace the chicken breasts with 4 lamb leg steaks. Or replace the curry powder with zest of a lemon and 1 tsp dried oregano.
