    Griddled chicken with tzatziki & courgette

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes

    Serves: 4


    6 chicken thigh fillets
    1 tsp ground coriander
    1 tsp ground cumin
    Pinch ground allspice
    ½ tsp ground cinnamon
    1½ tbsp olive oil
    1 lemon, zest and juice
    ½ red onion, finely sliced
    2 courgettes (about 350g), cut lengthways into 0.5cm slices
    200g cucumber, grated
    300g Müller White Velvet Plain Greek Style Yogurt
    ½ garlic clove, crushed
    Handful mint leaves, shredded
    4 flatbreads or pitta, toasted


    1. Toss the chicken in a bowl with the spices, 1 tbsp oil and the lemon zest; season and set aside. Toss the onion in a bowl with the lemon juice and a pinch of salt; set aside. Toss the courgette in a third bowl with the remaining ½ tbsp oil and season.

    2. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and griddle the courgette, in batches if needed, for about 2 minutes on each side until charred; set aside. Next, griddle the chicken for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until there is no pink meat or juices visible.

    3. Meanwhile, season the grated cucumber with salt and place in a clean tea towel or kitchen paper and firmly squeeze out the excess liquid. Tip into a bowl with the yogurt, season and stir through the garlic and mint. Slice the chicken and serve on flatbreads with the courgette, tzatziki and pickled onion.
