Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • Fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Olive oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced thickly
  • 1 tomato, halved
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 1/2 cucumbers, peeled and chopped
  • Garlic herb oil, for serving
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves, roughly chopped

Method

Step 1

For the chicken: Blend the turmeric and some salt with the yogurt in a large bowl and add the chicken. Toss to coat and marinate chicken for at least 10 minutes or up to 2 hours (in the fridge).

Step 2

Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for a few minutes on each side, until cooked through.

Step 3

For the vegetables: Drizzle olive oil on the onion, tomato and lemon and season with salt. Grill all until a bit charred on each side.

Step 4

For the tzatziki: Incorporate the yogurt, dill, mint, lemon juice and cucumbers. Season with salt and set aside.

Step 5

To serve, drizzle the chicken with garlic herb oil and spoon a scoop or two of tzatziki directly on top. Plate each dish with a few pieces of grilled veggies and, before serving, squeeze 1 grilled lemon half over the chicken and sprinkle with oregano.
