Ingredients

    a) Slimming World Version
  • 2 chicken breasts cut into chunks
  • 100g Alpro Soya Yoghurt (this equals 1 syn but you discard most of the marinade before cooking)
  • 1 tspn Ground Cumin
  • 2 tspns Lemon juice
  • 1 tspn Garlic Granules
  • 1/2 tspn Onion Salt
  • 1 tspn Paprika
  • b) Low Carb Version
  • 2 chicken breasts cut into chunks
  • 2 Tblspns Olive Oil
  • 100g Alpro Soya Yoghurt
  • 1 tspn Ground Cumin
  • 2 tspns Lemon juice
  • 1 tspn Garlic Granules
  • 1/2 tspn Onion Salt
  • 1 tspn Paprika

Instructions

    "Slimming World Version"
  1. Mix all the ingredients together and leave to marinade for at least 2 hours. Or overnight if you prefer. The yoghurt tenderises the chicken. Some people prefer thigh meat as it's more succulent but I personally prefer chicken breast.
  2. To cook the kebabs, take the chicken pieces out of the marinade. They should only have a light covering left on them. Slide the pieces on to metal skewers to cook a bit quicker, or damp wooden skewers. I didn't use skewers at all. Just laid the chicken pieces on a grill rack and grilled under a high heat for approximately 6 minutes each side. Make sure they're thoroughly cooked by checking for pink juices. There shouldn't be any pink.
  3. You can add onion, peppers or anything else you fancy in between the pieces of chicken on the skewers but remember to add any syns you might choose as extras.
  4. Serving suggestions: Wholemeal pitta bread (0 syns if part of your day's choice) A lovely crispy salad with fat free dressing. Slimming World oven baked fries or Rice
  5. Tesco Free from Pitta bread 7 syns each.
  6. "Low Carb Version"
  7. Mix all the ingredients together and leave to marinade for at least 2 hours. Or overnight if you prefer. The yoghurt tenderises the chicken. Some people prefer thigh meat as it's more succulent but I personally prefer chicken breast.
  8. To cook the kebabs, take the chicken pieces out of the marinade. They should only have a light covering left on them. Slide the pieces on to metal skewers to cook a bit quicker, or damp wooden skewers. I didn't use skewers at all. Just laid the chicken pieces on a grill rack and grilled under a high heat for approximately 6 minutes each side. Make sure they're thoroughly cooked by checking for pink juices. There shouldn't be any pink.
  9. You can add onion, peppers or anything else you fancy in between the pieces of chicken on the skewers but count any carb units used.
  10. Serving suggestion: Add as much mayonnaise as you like (not reduced fat as this contains carbs and milk) Serve with Salad. If you have a pitta bread this will count as 6 units on my Low Carb Unit counting diet
  11. Tesco sell a nice free from Pitta bread. Also 6 units

Notes

Although the Soya Yogurt contains a bit of fat, you have to discard the marinade and just leave a bare coating on the chicken (Slimming World) Although the preparation time is 2 hours that's where the chicken is left to marinade for a couple of hours, so doesn't mean you'll be stuck in the kitchen for all that amount of time
