Grilled Chicken Marinate

Tzatziki Sauce

Naan Bread



  1. Marinate & Grilled Chicken

    Put all marinate ingredients in a mason jar shake or mix well to combine.

    Slice or flatten chicken breasts to an even thickness, and place in a ziplock bag.

    Add about 3/4 of the marinade to the ziplock bag; saving 1/4 of it for later.

    Massage the marinate around to ensure chicken is well covered, seal the bag and refrigerate a couple hours.

    Remove from fridge at least 30 minutes before cooking to bring chicken to room temperature.

    Grill on a very hot grill, turning often and brushing with reserved 1/4 marinade once chicken is grilled on both sides. (Always cook until chicken hits 165 degrees)

  2. Tzatziki Sauce

    Mix all the ingredients until well combined, refrigerate until use.

  3. Naan Bread Recipe

    Combine yeast, water and sugar. Give a quick mix and set aside until foamy, about 10 minutes.

    Add to flour, yogurt, oil & salt in a mixer and use a dough hook mix about 10 minutes or until smooth and pulled away from the sides and in a ball.

    Put into a lightly oil bowl, cover with a damp towel and set aside in a warm place for 60 minutes.

    Put on a floured surface and roll into an even log and cut into 8 pieces, then turn each into a round ball.

    Flatten with a rolling pin into a 6-8 inch circle and cook in a medium hot, lightly oiled pan a couple minutes a side until bubbly and flip.

  4. Serving

    Take one pita/flatbread/Naan warm up on grill or oven, brush with sauce, add chopped chicken, add chopped cucumbers, add some curly parsley and onions and enjoy!
