  1. Whisk together the yogurt, onion, lemon juice, turmeric, cumin, paprika, salt, ginger, cayenne pepper, and black pepper in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add the chicken and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess.
  3. Cook the chicken on the preheated grill until well-browned and no longer pink in the center, 5 to 7 minutes. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  4. Pour the water, oil, and remaining marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until thickened and bubbling, about 10 minutes; stir in the chicken.
  5. Serve chicken on the pita breads, and top with cucumber and parsley.

I come from asian back ground. To get the best out of this recipe you must use a tea spoon of turmeric, not a table spoon.

I've used all these spices before, but never with yogurt. Tried to heat the marinade with oil & water and the whole thing just separated due to the yogurt curdling.

Delicious....though a bit spicy for our taste. Next time we'll reduce the cayenne pepper. Would be great with rice as well.

Not a ton of flavor

These had a flavor that just did not suit us. I have had turmeric in other dishes, but not in such a concentration and perhaps that was the problem. Thank you for the recipe, but I will not be...

I followed the recipe to the letter....but instead of pita bread we used tortillas to make them wraps....WOW. My girlfriend is a picky eater and gobbled these up like they were going out of styl...

Great !!!! I eat

I believe this could use some retouching. The yogurt did not serve as a good base and the flavor was not intense enough for us.
