Chicken tikka

To serve


Cut each chicken breast into 4 equally-sized pieces and pierce with a fork all over
Mix all the marinade ingredients and add the chicken pieces to it, making sure they are well coated
Cover with cling film and refrigerate for at least 4 hours
Meanwhile, peel the skin off the cucumber and discard. Use the peeler to make long cucumber ribbons, add a pinch of salt and place in a bowl for 15 minutes
Drain any water that has come out of the cucumber and mix with the lemon juice and yoghurt. Set aside while you cook the chicken
Place the chicken pieces on a grill rack set over a dripping tray and grill on both sides
Once gently browned, switch off the grill and cook in the oven at 200°C/gas mark 6 for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through
Serve hot in a wrap or fresh naan with the yoghurt and cucumber
