  • 2 chicken breasts cut into chunks
  • 100 g Alpro Soya Yoghurt this equals 1 syn but you discard most of the marinade before cooking

  • 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
  • 100 g 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"

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Tesco Free from Pitta bread 7 syns each.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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
