Turkish/Indian Fusion Chicken Kebabs under 500 Calories!
The other day I made Jamie Oliver’s naan bread for a curry & it was so delish I had to make it again – Google his recipe, it’s AWESOME! For an under 500 calorie meal I served it with chicken kebabs which I’ve given a Turkish/Indian fusion, raita (different to the one I made for falafels the other day) & a prepared Indian salad as well as some leaves. Very filling & very yum! You only need to eat ONE naan bread to stay under the 500 calories but you will want to eat more!
KEBAB INGREDIENTS PER PERSON: 1 medium chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces, 1 tbsp plain low fat yogurt, half tsp each of curry powder, cinnamon, cumin, turmeric & chilli flakes, a drizzle of olive oil, one lemon (zested and juiced), 1 tsp of garlic puree & sea salt.
KEBAB METHOD: Mix the yogurt with all the ingredients & add the chicken. Coat thoroughly then place in the fridge for at least 5 hours. Skewer with some red onion & either grill or bake in the oven turning frequently.
