  • high there im Georgie from Jamie Oliver's food team and today im going to show you

  • how to make Cypriot style chicken skewers Cypriot food because its closer to the middle east

  • there's lots of spices and gorgeous herbs

  • we are using pitta bread with cumin lovely chicken skewers which we marinated with

  • coriander lemon

  • and a really easy salad

  • so

  • i've got some pitta bread here and this is going to be the base of the recipe and all i have done

  • is get normal pitta bread from the supermarket put your thumb

  • in the middle

  • and pull it apart

  • you don't need to use a knife or anything fancy because you are going to crumble it all up anyway

  • a drizzle of oil some lovely bashed up

  • cumin seeds sprinkle those on salt and pepper and you just need to roast them for about

  • ten minutes

  • two hundred degrees put them on the base of your platter

  • we are going to cover this with all different things so a lovely yoghurty dressing

  • the chicken

  • so it will absorb all the flavours

  • i have got lovely chicken breasts here

  • im just going to flavour

  • our chicken grab a clove of garlic

  • we are going to use a little bit of salt

  • and around a teaspoon of coriander seeds

  • you don't want those to be totally ground up a bit of pepper

  • use an unwaxed lemon

  • and if you cant give it a good old wash

  • grate in zest

  • and continue to give it a good old mix

  • what you want to do now is add enough oil to make it into quite a loose paste

  • to coat your chicken there you go you have got a fantastic marinade there brilliant

  • you want to cut your chicken breasts so they fir onto skewers we want to do strips

  • you want your chicken to be about the same size you want them to cook at the same time over the griddle

  • pour in the marinade that you made and just

  • toss it all together really massage the flavours into that meat

  • and thread them onto

  • your skewer now i've put my griddle pan on ready you want it to be searing hot

  • you can apply the same method to any joint of chicken for your summer bbq

  • just make sure the chicken isn't crammed together because if it's

  • too tightly packed

  • it's not going to cook

  • keep an eye on that we are going to make a really lovely yoghurt dressing which we are going to put

  • underneath the chicken

  • so all you need is some

  • mint a cucumber some seasoning

  • and actually my mum always puts a little bit of grated garlic grate your cucumber

  • just squeeze out the excess liquid you can get rid of that

  • grate in

  • half a clove of garlic

  • on a finer setting and then pick off some mint leaves

  • i'm going to chop them quite fine you don't want to be chewing on

  • bits of leaf this goes into the bowl as well salt pepper

  • mix in some yoghurt greek yoghurt best fat free

  • natural yoghurt is fine too that looks absolutely awesome

  • add a bit of extra virgin olive oil

  • ahh that's fantastic really

  • good

  • just have a look at your chicken

  • make sure you know you keep an eye on it give it a bit of love

  • and the last thing were going to do is make coleslaw

  • you just want to get

  • a white cabbage and

  • shred it as fine as you can

  • what you want to do now is the same but with a white onion

  • you can grab the lemon you used earlier

  • squeeze it in

  • just really work that lemon in season

  • add some really good extra virgin olive oil

  • work it together

  • your hands are your best tool the chicken is looking great

  • and that should be perfectly cooked

  • and if you are nervous

  • just get a knife

  • and cut into it a little bit make sure its not pink and

  • if the juices run clear from the chicken then you know you are fine if the juice

  • is still a bit pink and bloody

  • then you know just put it back on the heat so that is actually perfect so we can

  • turn the heat off

  • can finish our dish

  • dollop on lovely big dollops of this tzatziki and put our

  • chicken straight on to our

  • tzatziki on pitta

  • finish that with your coleslaw

  • i've got a bit of fresh coriander just run your knife through them

  • toss that through the slore and it just adds a lovely bit more flavour and vibrancy and makes

  • the whole think a little bit fresher look at that that looks awesome

  • scatter that over our chicken

  • another very sort of greek middle eastern flavour sesame seeds

  • just for more texture sprinkle those over the top

  • and there you have it my Cypriot style chicken skewers with lovely cumin crispy pitta

  • bread

  • homemade tzatziki

  • and a really refreshing slaw
