Ingredients

Garlic Sauce

  • 6-8 x garlic cloves, peeled (approx bulb)
  • 1 x tbs natural yoghurt

Herb and Leaf Salad to serve

  • 2-3 cups salad and herbs, green leaves including snow pea tendrils, oregano leaves, baby spinach leaves, baby rocket leaves and microherbs, lebanese cucumber; sliced smashed avocado/pita wraps, optional

Method

  1. In a medium bowl combine chicken, juice of 1/2 a lemon, olive oil, oregano, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix to thoroughly coat the chicken. Cover and leave to marinate for 20 minutes.
  2. To prepare the garlic sauce, bring a small saucepan of water to the boil over high heat. Blanch the garlic cloves for 1-2 mins, drain and add to the yoghurt in a blender or small food processor. Blend until smooth.
  3. Soak 6 bamboo skewers in water for 10-20 minutes. Skewer the chicken.
  4. Preheat a bbq or griddle pan over high heat. Cook the skewers on the heat turning to ensure they are well cooked.
  5. To serve, place 2-3 skewers on a plate, serve with the herb salad leaves, cucumber, and drizzle with the garlic sauce. Serve a lemon cheek to squeeze on the salad, and a small drizzle of olive oil to finish.
