Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Marinating time: 4 hours

  1. Mix yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, paprika, chilli flakes, and salt in a large bowl. Add chicken pieces, mix to coat, cover, and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  2. Remove chicken from fridge and thread onto skewers. Cook on a barbecue or in a grill pan for 12-15 minutes, turning to cook on all sides. Set aside to rest.
  3. For the fattoush salad, place lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, radishes, parsley and mint in a large bowl. Toss. Top with cut pita.
  4. To make the dressing, whisk sumac, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil in a bowl. Pour over the top of the salad to dress.
  5. Serve chicken kebab warm, with fattoush salad on the side.
