Chicken Breast:

  • 2 pounds chicken breast boneless skinless
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoons oregano
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Spicy Chickpeas

  • 1 cup chickpeas cooked
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil


  • Perfect Tahini Sauce
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 4 pita breads
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1 cup baby tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup parsley and mint leaves chopped


  1. Preheat the grill to medium.
  2. Put the chicken and marinade ingredients all in one bowl and toss well. Skewer the chicken pieces on a wood or metal stick and start putting it on the grill.
  3. Let the chicken cook for 5 minutes and then flip the skewers. Cook for another 5-7 minutes with the lid covered.
  4. In the meantime make the tahini sauce and chickpeas.
  5. For the chickpeas: Toss all ingredients together and roast in a preheated 425 degrees oven for 15 mins.
  6. Alternatively you can cook the chickpeas on the stove top stirring occasionally to maintain a crisp crust on the chickpeas.
  7. Serve the chicken topped with feta, herbs and with the sauce and bread.

Recipe Notes

Use boneless chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts in this recipe if you prefer.
Cut the chicken into about an inch size cubes so they all cook together and cook in 15 mins max.
Don’t over flip the chicken skewers, instead let them charr and flip them twice or so.
Grill the chicken with the lid covered for at least half the time.
If you want to prepare in advance, marinade the chicken up to a day ahead but leave out the salt. Add the salt just before grilling.
Make the tahini sauce and spicy chickpeas while the chicken is grilling.
To make this an entertaining recipe, serve the grilled chicken skewers scattered on a platter with the sauce, feta cheese, some pita bread, salad, lemon slices and watch everyone devour !
