Chicken Shish and Zhoug Pittas


  1. Chuck the chicken, yogurt, tomato puree, Baharat, the juice of ½ a lemon and a good pinch of salt into a mixing bowl. Mix well. Cover and leave to marinade for 1 hour or overnight in the fridge.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200 fan. Put the chicken into a shallow roasting tray and roast for 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Place onto a chopping board and slice thinly. Squeeze over the remaining lemon and season with a little more salt. Toss together.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the zhoug chuck everything into a blender with a good pinch of salt and blend until smooth. Add more oil if it looks too thick. This will keep int the fridge for a good week.
