Preparation time: 120 minutes, Cooking time: 15 minutes, Serves: 4 - 6
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
For the chicken marinade
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp Japanese mirin
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
A pinch of dried tarragon
A pinch of cinnamon
Salt and black pepper to taste
For the spiced yogurt dip
1 1/2 cups yogurt
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 medium cucumber, finely chopped
Salt to taste
2 Tbsp olive oil
Marinade the chicken
Cut chicken into long, thin stripes (3/4 inch thick), then cut each stripe into 1 inch pieces.
In a bowl add all the marinade ingredients and stir until well blended.
Add the chicken and marinade into a plastic freezer bag and mix well to coat the chicken well. Seal the bag, removing as much of the air as possible and massage the chicken so that it gets completely covered in the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours (you can do this the day before).
Make the spiced yogurt
Add the yogurt and remaining ingredients (spices, garlic, cucumber and olive oil) in a bowl and stir well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
Cook the chicken
Soak skewers in water for 15 minutes.
Thread the marinaded chicken on the skewers and cook the chicken on grill grates for 10 to 15 minutes or until cooked in the middle. Do not overcook the chicken because it will become dry.
Serve the chicken with the spiced yogurt and pitta bread.
