    Total Calories:
    Protein in g:
    Carbs in g:
    Fats in g: 
    2kg Chicken breast, cut into cubes 
    For the marinade:
    8 tsp olive oil (adjust this depending on your daily allowance)
    1 tbsp Pathak’s Tandoori Paste
    100g 0% Fat Total Fage Greek yogurt
    Juice of 1 lemon
    2 tbsp finely chopped/crushed garlic
    1 tbsp finely chopped/crushed ginger
    3-4 finely chopped green chillies (optional)
    Handful of finely chopped fresh coriander (optional)
    1. In a large glass bowl, mix the marinade ingredients together.
    2. Add the chicken cubes to the marinade and mix well.
    3. Cover and marinate chicken in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
    4. When ready to cook chicken, preheat oven to 200o
    5. Line a large baking tray with foil (makes cleaning up a lot easier!) and soak 10 wooden skewers in water for about 20 minutes (prevents them from burning when cooking).
    6. Thread chicken cubes onto skewers, leaving a little gap in between the chicken pieces, and place skewers on the lined baking tray.
    7. Bake chicken in the oven for 10 minutes, turn over, and cook for another 10-15 minutes until browned and cooked through.
    8. Squeeze extra lemon juice over chicken if required before serving.
    Are there any general substitutions that can be made? (vegetarian or meat options, depending):
    Could use chicken thighs instead depending on fat allowance
