These aren't your ordinary kebabs. Healthy and very more-ish

Healthy Turkish Kebabs


  • 500 grams chicken breasts, cubed

  • 150 grams 0 percent fat Greek yoghurt

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 baby gem lettuce, broken into leaves

  • 1 carrot, julienned

  • 1/4 red cabbage, very finely sliced

  • Yoghurt

  • Chili flakes


  1. Marinate your chicken in the yoghurt, spices and lemon juice for a minimum of twenty minutes

  2. When you're ready to start skewering the chicken, heat up a griddle pan until it's very hot. Once hot, place your kebabs on and let look, turning every so often. This should take 15 - 20 minutes. Then set aside to rest.

  3. Serve with the salad vegetable, using the lettuce leaf to hold cubes of meat rather than having a pitta. Serve with a dollop of yoghurt and a sprinkle of chilli flakes.
