  • 6 small chicken breasts
  • 6 burger buns (we used ciabatta)

For the marinade

  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 200g pot Greek yogurt
  • thumb-sized piece ginger, very finely grated
  • 4 garlic cloves, very finely grated or crushed
  • 2 tbsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • juice 1 lemon, plus wedges to serve

For the chutney

  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 green chilli, chopped
  • 1 tsp tamarind pulp
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup

For the salad

  • ½ cucumber, sliced
  • 1 Little Gem lettuce, shredded
  • small bunch mint, leaves picked
  • 1 small red onion, halved and finely sliced


  1. Mix the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Open out each chicken breast and flatten slightly. Place the chicken in the marinade for at least 2-3 hrs. Meanwhile, mix the chutney ingredients together and set aside. (It will keep in the fridge overnight.)
  2. Heat the BBQ until the coals are ashen, then griddle the chicken for 4-5 mins on each side until cooked through. Toss the salad ingredients and place the chicken in the buns with the salad and spoonfuls of chutney. Serve with lemon wedges.
