  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oi
  • 150g Humous
  • 150g Greek yoghurt
  • Pitta Breads


  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2 level teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 level teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 level teaspoon tumeric
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Mix the lime juice, coriander, cumin, tumeric, salt and mint together in a bowl.

  2. Cut the chicken into thin strips and cover in the mixture. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave to marinade. Stir occasionally.

  3. Mix the yoghurt and humous together in equal measures and chill until required. Typically I use a heaped desert spoon of each per person.

  4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the chicken for 8-10 minutes, stirring regularly, until golden.

  5. Heat the pitta bread under a hot grill and split with a knife. Fill with chicken, salad and the humous/yoghurt mixture.

LOVE this recipe! It was on a Sainsbury's card in the early 90's and my Mum used to make it often. I'm so happy to find the recipe again. Thank you so much!

Served up for an easy, sociable, supper for friends during the World Cup. Went down very well. Have used different base recipes before but this one has a good balance of flavours, thanks.
