1 teaspoon turmeric

Fine sea salt

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts


Olive oil

1 red onion, sliced thickly

1 tomato, halved

1 lemon, halved


2 cups Greek yogurt

1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

1/4 cup chopped fresh mint

2 lemons, juiced

1 1/2 cucumbers, peeled and chopped

Garlic herb oil, for serving

1/2 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves, roughly chopped


  1. For the chicken: Blend the turmeric and some salt with the yogurt in a large bowl and add the chicken. Toss to coat and marinate chicken for at least 10 minutes or up to 2 hours (in the fridge).
  2. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for a few minutes on each side, until cooked through.
  3. For the vegetables: Drizzle olive oil on the onion, tomato and lemon and season with salt. Grill all until a bit charred on each side.
  4. For the tzatziki: Incorporate the yogurt, dill, mint, lemon juice and cucumbers. Season with salt and set aside.
  5. To serve, drizzle the chicken with garlic herb oil and spoon a scoop or two of tzatziki directly on top. Plate each dish with a few pieces of grilled veggies and, before serving, squeeze 1 grilled lemon half over the chicken and sprinkle with oregano.
