1 Marinate chicken

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Slice the chicken breasts into goujons and add them to a bowl. Wash the lemon and grate its zest with a fine blade. Peel and crush the garlic. Add 0.5/0.75/1 tsp of lemon zest, 1/1.5/2 Tbsp of lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, honey, dried oregano, salt and pepper to the bowl. Marinate for 10 min.

2 Roast veggies

Meanwhile, peel and slice the onions into wedges. Chop the peppers and tomatoes roughly. Add the onions, peppers and tomatoes to a lined baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Toss until coated. Roast in the oven for 10 min.

3 Add chicken skewers

Thread the chicken onto bamboo skewers. Remove the vegetables from the oven and place the skewers on top (alternatively, cook the skewers on a grill and continue to bake the vegetables in the oven). Roast the lot for 10 min further or until the chicken is cooked through.

4 Make tzatziki

Add the yogurt to a bowl. Peel and crush the garlic. Grate the cucumber and squeeze out any excess liquid. Add the garlic (don't like raw garlic? Go easy!) and the cucumber to the yogurt. Season with a pinch of salt.
