Ingredients
  • 1 Kg Boneless & Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 400 grams Full Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • the juice of half a lemon
  • the zest of 1 lemon
  • 10 grams Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 Tbsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp Pepper

Instructions
  1. Mix the yogurt with the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, pepper and spices in a big bowl. Set the marinade aside and move on to the chicken
  2. Place some cling film over the chicken thigh and beat it with the flat end of the meat mallet to even it out. This will help it cook more evenly. Do this to all the thighs.
  3. Then marinate the thighs in the marinade for about 24 hours. You can marinate it for a shorter duration as well. It's completely up to you.
  4. Then cut a thick piece of onion and push a skewer through it to create a vertical spit. Then pierce and layer the chicken one above the other in opposite directions (watch the video) and then bake in a pre-heated oven at 200C for 1.5-2 hours.
  5. Once done just slice that chicken and eat with some tzatziki or in a Keto naan or even in a salad bowl.

    Sahil, are the wooden skewers to be soaked in water before using?

      No required because it’s pretty much covered and it’s not being cooked on coals or anything but just as a precaution you can if you like but I didn’t do that.

    Sahil,

    I must say this is the first keto / Low carb site I have found where the recipes give authentic tastes. My wife and myself are working through your recipes and really enjoying ourselves and our mealtimes – I am the constant fatman on the constant keto and my wife is naturally thin – she was growing very weary of the low carb way of life.

    We tried the Gyros and it came out fantastic – one thing that came to mind was that in the UK it is very difficult to make authentic tandoori in a conventional oven. We are going to try this method with tandoori marinade – has this ever crossed your mind?

    We will let you know how we get on!

    many thanks
    Kam and Sweety (UK)
