Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Servings 4


  • 2 large chicken breasts (or 4 small ones)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dukkah
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • a bunch of fresh parsley (to serve)


  • Chop the chicken into large chunks.
  • To a large bowl, add all the dried herbs, along with the salt and the olive oil. Zest the lemon, and add to the bowl, then cut it in half and juice in half of the lemon. Finely chop or mince the garlic and add this too.
  • Add the chicken chunks and stir together until the chicken is all coated. Cover the bowl in cling film and leave to marinate in the fridge for 20 minutes (or up to overnight if you wish).
  • Preheat your grill to the highest setting. After marinating, add 5-6 chicken chunks to each of your skewers. Place under the grill for around 7 minutes, or until charred on the top. Then take out from the grill, and carefully turn the skewers over. Place back under the grill for another 4-5 minutes until that side is charred too.
  • Remove from the grill. Make sure the chicken is cooked by cutting open a piece and ensuring it is white all the way through. Serve with greek yoghurt and bread of your choice.
