Chicken Zorba

I know I first wrote this recipe down in 1997. I've forgotten where it came from but I think it was linked to a Sainsbury's advertising campaign.

Time: ~15 minutes preparation, ~1 hour marinade, ~15 minutes to cook

Serves: 4




  • Mix the lime juice, coriander, cumin, tumeric, salt and mint together in a bowl.
  • Cut the chicken into small pieces strips and cover in the mixture. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave to marinade in the fridge. Stir occasionally if you can remember!
  • Mix the yoghurt and humous together in equal measures when required.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the chicken for 8-10 minutes, stirring regularly, until golden.
  • Heat the pitta bread under a hot grill and split with a knife. Fill with chicken, salad and the humous/yoghurt mixture.
