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: 3-4 hours

  1. Pour olive oil into a bowl with lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine. Add chicken pieces to bowl and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours.
  2. Add chicken pieces to skewers that have been soaked in water. Brush with excess marinade.
  3. Grill 10-15 minutes, turning, until cooked.
  4. Plate chicken on pita topped with sliced tomatoes and tzatziki.
