  • ½ bunch of mint leaves
  • ¾ cup of plain yoghurt
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • 1 tsp of paprika
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 6 skewers soaked in water
  • Oil spray


  1. Dice up the chicken and thread them onto pre wettened skewers. Place them evenly on a plate.
  2. In a bowl mix up all the ingredients and tear up the mint leaves on top. Mix the marinade together and then pour it on top of the chicken skewers. Roll them around so all sides are covered in yoghurt.
  3. You can cover the skewers and place them in the refrigerator to marinade for an hour or you can cook them on the grill straight away.
  4. To cook, use the oil spray on the grill (not a light or on naked flame). Cook the skewers for a few minutes on each side.
