Yogurt is something I do cook a lot with at home and so to celebrate the first dedicated Yogurt Week we’ve been getting creative in the kitchen with a pot of natural yogurt….

And this is what we’ve come up with a tasty simple kebab recipe – great for using on the BBQ or grilling indoors.

The chicken is marinated and packed full of delicious punchy garlicky flavour complimented with fragrant coriander.

To accompany this is a fab chilli spiked indian style salad – vibrant, light and tasty. And of course the meal needs MORE yogurt so I whipped up a super quick cucumber mint raita which was definitely needed after that spicy salad!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • For the garlic & coriander chicken kebabs:
  • 3 cloves of garlic - finely chopped
  • 2 large handfuls of coriander - chopped
  • 4 heaped tbs of natural yogurt
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 large chicken breasts - skin removed and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 long kebab skewers
  • For the chilli spiked Indian style salad:
  • half an iceberg (or a full little gem) lettuce - finely shredded
  • 1/3 of a cucumber - cut into small strips
  • 2 tomatoes - deseeded and chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 red pepper - chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 red onion - finely chopped
  • large handful of coriander leaves - chopped
  • small red chilli - finely sliced
  • lemon
  • sea salt


1. First make the kebab marinade - simply mix the yogurt, coriander and garlic together
and season with salt and pepper.

2. Tip the chicken pieces into the marinade and mix well to coat (you can leave this
in the fridge for a few hours or cook straight away)

3. Thread the chicken pieces onto the kebab sticks.

4. Heat the grill/BBQ and cook gently on a medium-low heat for around 20 - 30 minutes
until the chicken has no pink remaining.

5. Whilst the chicken kebabs are cooking - make a start on the Indian style salad.

6. Toss all the salad items into a bowl - sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and a
squeeze of lemon.

7. Mix up the cucumber & mint raita - combine the yogurt, mint leaves and cucumber
in a small dish - add a grind of black pepper.


To serve scatter the salad onto a platter and
place the kebabs on top - serve with the mint raita on the side - this is also
nice with a bowl of simple pilau rice (yes I cheat... I buy the microwave rice
