Chicken Shish Method:

1. For the marinade, add the olive oil, cumin, paprika, oregano, lemon, parsley and garlic to a blender. Blitz until combined.

2. Next, add the marinade, diced chicken, salt and pepper to a large mixing bowl. Cover and leave it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

3. Add a drizzle of olive oil to your skillet (or frying pan), turn to a medium heat and start to cook the chicken.

4. Continue to regularly turn the chicken until its cooked through (usually takes around 12-15 minutes). For the last few minutes turn to a high heat to get the chicken crisp.

5. Once it is cooked, serve onto a plate with your choice of sides. I normally have a pitta, some rice, greek salad and tzatziki.

6. Next, enjoy! 🙂
