Best Ever Chargrilled Chicken

Best Ever Chargrilled Chicken

Serves 4

This is my absolute favourite way to eat chicken. Drenched in fragrant middle eastern spices and gorgeously charred for extra flavour; it’s incredible with everything. Add it to salads or sandwiches or simply pair it with delicious sides for a flavour hit you won’t be able to get enough of.

Ingredients

4 Chicken Breasts

For the Marinade:
2 Teaspoons of Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon of Cumin
1/4 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
1 Clove of Garlic, Minced
3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
3 Tablespoons of Greek Yoghurt
Juice of 1 Lemon

Step1: Lay your chicken out on a sheet of parchment paper and use the back of a spoon to spread half of the mixture evenly over the breasts. Flip them over and do the same with the rest of the marinade. Place another sheet of parchment paper on top of the chicken breasts and pound them with a rolling pin until tender and thin. If you have time, cover the chicken and pop it in the fridge for up to 24 hours to let it marinate in the gorgeous spices. If not, you can cook it straight away!

Step 2: Heat a griddle pan on high heat (or even better, use a barbecue!) and drizzle on a little coconut or olive oil. When it’s hot, add the chicken breasts. Let them cook for about 5 minutes on each side, until cooked through and gorgeously charred.

Step 3: Serve and enjoy!
