Last night I really fancied a kebab. You know, one of those greasy things in a pitta you have after a heavy night in the pub.
I didn't give in to the temptation (relatively easy as it was regular tea time and not a late night beer fuelled decision!) but I found a way round it! I made one at home. Non greasy, low fat and really tasty.
I bought some chicken and cut in to cubes. I marinated it with a dry rub (a moderately spicy peri peri one). I then sprayed my griddle with fry light and chargrilled the chicken. Whilst that was cooking I made my own tzatsiki. I put 3 cloves of garlic, a few splashes of lemon juice, some mint leaves, a little salt and a dollop of Greek yoghurt in a mini blender and whizzed it up. I then added more Greek yoghurt and some finely diced cucumber until it was the right consistency and flavour. I then transferred the cooked chicken to a warming oven whilst I griddled a pitta and chopped some salad (little gem, tomato, cucumber and lots of raw onion). Once done I put the chicken in the pitta, garnished with the salad and drizzled the tzatsiki on top.
It was lovely. Tasted naughty but with 1 chicken breast coming in at about 150 cal, the pitta about the same and few calories in the yoghurt dressing or salad I think the whole plate comes in at about 350 cals.
Will definitely be on the menu again and may even leave out the pitta when really pushing for it!
