Lemon chicken on the braai

By Mandy  

October 4, 2018

The zesty marinade tenderises the meat (and adds stacks of flavour to this chicken on the braai, too!)

  • Prep: 32 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins


4 chicken breasts

3 tbsp olive or avocado oil

zest of 2 lemons, juice of 1

3 tsp sumac (from speciality spice shops)

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tbsp coriander, chopped

1 red onion, thinly sliced

To serve

1 tbsp tahini mixed into 6 tbsp yoghurt

1/4 cucumber, sliced thinly

extra lemon wedges

griddled or toasted pita breads


1Put the chicken breasts between 2 sheets of clingfilm and, using a rolling pin, beat to flatten out. Put the chicken in a bowl with 2tbsp oil, the lemon zest, 1/2 the juice, 2tsp sumac, the cumin and coriander. Marinate for 30 mins.

2Meanwhile, mix the red onion with the remaining oil, lemon juice and sumac.

3Heat a braai or griddle and grill the chicken for 4-5 mins each side until cooked through. Serve with the red onion, tahini yoghurt, cucumber, lemon wedges and pita breads.
