Za'atar Chicken Skewers with Herby Garlic Yoghurt

2-3 people

15 minutes (plus 1 hour marinate)

Great for barbecuing, these skewers are a doddle to make and are packed full of flavour, dunked into the creamy, herby yoghurt. If the weather isn't barbeque worthy you can also grill or griddle these.

Here’s how you do it

  1. If using wooden skewers, soak in water to prevent them from burning.
  2. Mix together the za'atar, sumac, olive oil, lemon zest, garlic and a teaspoon of salt. Rub into the chicken leg pieces and leave to marinate for an hour.
  3. Heat up your barbecue or griddle.
  4. Thread the chicken pieces on to the skewers, leaving a space between each piece so that they cook evenly.
  5. Griddle the skewers for 10-15 minutes, turning to cook all sides.
  6. Mix together the yoghurt with the mint, parsley and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Serve alongside the skewers, to be dunked in.
