Sumac is a dried fruit which is ground to make a spice which has a tasty lemony flavour.

Ingredients

skinless chicken breast

500 g, cut into 3cm pieces

ground sumac

2 tsp

olive oil

1 tbs

basmati rice

½ cup(s), (90g)

dried turmeric

½ tsp

green beans

400 g

tomato(es)

3 medium, coarsely chopped

pomegranate

½ medium, seeds removed

fresh chervil

20 g, (1/2 cup) leaves

red onion

¼ small, finely chopped

99% fat-free plain yoghurt

cup(s), (80g)

garlic

½ clove(s), crushed

Instructions

  1. Thread chicken onto 8 metal or soaked bamboo skewers. Sprinkle with sumac.
  2. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add skewers and cook, turning occasionally, for 8 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, place rice and turmeric in a small saucepan with ¾ cup (180ml) water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 12 minutes. Set aside, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff up rice with a fork.
  4. Cook green beans in a small saucepan of boiling water over high heat for 2 minutes. Drain. Transfer to a medium bowl with tomato, pomegranate, chervil, onion and remaining oil. Season with salt and pepper. Toss well to combine. Combine yoghurt, garlic and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve skewers with rice, salad and yoghurt sauce.

Notes

TIP: If you can’t find chervil, you can use flat-leaf parsley instead.
