  • Whisk together the coriander, cumin, cardamom, chili powder, grill seasoning, paprika, and turmeric in a bowl; whisk in juice of 1/2 lemon, garlic, and 3 tablespoons olive oil to form a paste. Coat the chicken breasts with the spice paste.

  • Grill chicken breasts on the preheated grill until juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink at the center, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate and cool for 1 to 2 minutes; slice thinly.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir onion, red pepper, and yellow pepper into the hot olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir together Greek yogurt, tahini, juice of remaining 1/2 lemon, and remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil in a bowl until smooth; season with salt.

  • Place pitas on the grill until heated through and lightly charred on the outside, about 1 minute per side. To assemble each sandwich, place some sliced chicken on each pita; top with some of the pepper mixture and a good dollop of yogurt tahini sauce.

It was ok. Maybe too much cardamom because it had a medicinal taste. Read More

I used the spice mixture to marinate some precooked chicken meatballs. I cut the meatballs in half and coated all sides with the marinade let them marinate for 2 hours and then sautèed them in the marinade with a little more olive oil added. We stuffed the meatballs into pitas with tzatziki sauce which I had made the day before. Delicious! My husband raved about these sandwiches. I'll definitely use this recipe again next time as written. Read More

Good as written but used twice as much of the seasoning to coat both sides of 6 halved chicken breasts chicken well. Use sauce liberally it's delicious and the recipe makes plenty. Read More

Very tasty. The recipe looks daunting due to all of the spices but it comes together quickly. It's a good substitute for the street food but it was missing something - maybe just the atmosphere? Read More
