This kebab is a perfect balance of flavours; juicy aromatic spiced chicken, garlicky, creamy labneh, and crispy fried savoury onions, all topped off with little pops of sweet and sour pomegranate.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 skin-on boneless chicken thighs
2 tablespoons baharat spice mix
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 shallots, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon plain flour
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the labneh

Quantity Ingredient
200g greek yoghurt
1 garlic clove, crushed
handful flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
1 baby gem lettuce, torn
50g pomegranate seeds
2 flatbreads

Method

  1. Start by making the labneh. Set a sieve over a large bowl and line it with a couple of sheets of kitchen paper. Mix the yogurt, garlic, parsley, and salt together, then spoon the mixture into the centre of the sieve. Gather up the corners of the kitchen paper and secure. Leave to strain for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, rub the chicken with the baharat and cinnamon, and season well. Set aside.
  3. Toss the shallots in the flour. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium–high heat and cook the shallots until golden and crisp – about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper. You may have to do this in batches as the shallots burn easily and colour quickly.
  4. Heat a barbeque or griddle pan to high. Cook the chicken, skin-side down, for 5 minutes. Flip over and cook for a further 3 minutes until cooked through and charred in places. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Unwrap the herby labneh, thickly slice the chicken thighs, and serve with lettuce and the pomegranate seeds in a warm flatbread.
