Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Chicken Shish Kebab, Tomato Bulgur Pilaf & Salad

Slice the chicken thighs into thin strips, then add them to a bowl with the ground paprika, ground cumin, the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon and a drizzle of olive oil

Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up

2 Chicken Shish Kebab, Tomato Bulgur Pilaf & Salad

Put the chicken strips in the fridge to marinate until later

Meanwhile, dice the red onion[s] as finely as you can

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid) with a drizzle of olive oil over a low heat

Once hot, add the diced onion and cook for 6 min or until softened

3 Chicken Shish Kebab, Tomato Bulgur Pilaf & Salad

Boil a kettle

Soak your skewers in cold water (this prevents them from burning whilst cooking)

Dissolve the Knorr chicken stock cube[s] and tomato paste in 400ml [750ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock

4 Chicken Shish Kebab, Tomato Bulgur Pilaf & Salad

Once the onion has softened, add the bulgur wheat and sultanas and cook for 1 min or until coated in the oil

Add the tomato stock to the pan and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, for 15 min or until the water has absorbed and the bulgur is cooked – this is your tomato bulgur pilaf

5 Chicken Shish Kebab, Tomato Bulgur Pilaf & Salad

Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high

Thread the marinated chicken strips evenly onto 4 [8] skewers, leaving a small gap between each piece – these are your chicken shish kebabs

6 Chicken Shish Kebab, Tomato Bulgur Pilaf & Salad

Add the chicken shish kebabs to a baking tray (use tin foil to avoid mess!)

Put the tray under the grill for 12-14 min, turning once halfway, or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!) and slightly charred

Meanwhile, add the natural yoghurt to a bowl with a pinch of salt and a small squeeze of lemon juice (save the rest for later!) – this is your lemon yoghurt

7 Chicken Shish Kebab, Tomato Bulgur Pilaf & Salad

Meanwhile, grate the carrot[s]

Dice the tomato[es]

Add the remaining lemon juice to a large bowl with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and a pinch of salt

Add the grated carrot, diced tomato and baby leaf salad and give everything a good mix up
