Try this Mediterranean inspired dish – it’s packed with 41g of protein to keep you fuller for longer as well as nutritious veggies.
Equipment you’ll need: 8 wooden skewers or 8 metal skewers
- 1 small pack mint, leaves picked
- 150g natural yogurt
- 1 lemon, juiced
- ½ tsp ground cumin
- ½ tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp freshly ground pepper
- 4 skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3cm chunks
- 1 red or yellow pepper, seeded and cut into 3cm chunks
If using wooden skewers soak eight in cold water for about half an hour. While the skewers are soaking, cut the chicken and peppers into 3cm chunks.
Mix the mint, natural yoghurt, lemon juice, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper in a large bowl, then add the chicken. Mix until everything is coated, then cover the bowl and put in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 30 minutes or longer until ready to use.
Thread the marinated chicken and peppers onto skewers alternating between them. Cook for 20 – 30 minutes in the oven at 180C or until golden on the outside and cooked through. Serve with rice and salad – and enjoy!
