This recipe is my nephew’s favorite dinner. It’s a recipe from a Sainsbury’s card from the early ’90s. I have to say, I understand why it’s his favorite dinner. The chicken was so tender (due to marinating it overnight) and flavorful.
Also, the hummus / Greek yogurt mixture is heaven!
4 chicken breasts, cut into pieces
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp dried coriander
juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup of hummus
2-3 Tbs greek yogurt
1 bag of salad
1 red pepper
Marinate chicken in turmeric, coriander, cumin, and lime for at least 30 min, but preferably overnight.
Sauté the chicken until browned and thoroughly cooked and put into bowl.
Mix the hummus and the yogurt together until smooth.
Cut up tomato and red bell pepper and toss into salad with dressing – see below.
Toast the pita and cut in half.
Put the hummus mixture, chicken, and salad into each pita half.
3 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbs red wine vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard (smooth or grainy, your preference)
1-2 crushed cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk all ingredients together until combined.
