Servings: 4
Calories: 276kcal

Ingredients

For the dough

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 200 g Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tsp tomato purée
  • 2 tsp chilli flakes (Aleppo are nice)
  • 2 tsp sumac
  • 4 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 300 g baby plum tomatoes
  • 1 thumb-sized red chilli, stem removed
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate molasses
  • a handful fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • a handful fresh coriander
  • long pickled chillis (guindillas)

  • 4 Middle Eastern flatbreads

Instructions

  • Crush 1 garlic clove and mix with 3 tbsp yogurt, the lemon juice, 1 tsp tomato purée, half the spices, and some seasoning in a medium bowl. 
  • Add the chicken, toss, cover and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hr or overnight.
  • Make the chilli sauce. Put 100g of the tomatoes, the whole red chilli, the remaining spices, garlic clove and tomato purée, plus 1 tbsp olive oil, half the red onion and the pomegranate molasses in a food processor. Add some seasoning and pulse until puréed, then set aside.
  • Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6, and heat a griddle pan. Thread the chicken onto metal skewers or wooden ones that have been soaked, then wipe off the excess marinade. Skewer the remaining tomatoes on a separate skewer. 
  • Lightly oil the griddle with the remaining olive oil and brown the chicken on both sides, then transfer to a baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 mins, or until cooked through. 
  • Meanwhile, griddle the tomatoes for 1-2 mins, turning halfway through so they have griddle marks on both sides.
  • Serve the chicken and tomatoes on flatbreads with the remaining red onion, pickled chillis, the remaining Greek yogurt, parsley and coriander with the chilli sauce spooned over.
