Healthy Kebabs that the kids love…
Welcome to the foodie series week 2. This week we made minted lamb and Cajun chicken kebabs, they were a hit with the kids! Can be made for lunch or dinner!
You will need:
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1 pack of diced lamb
- Vegetable oil
- Half a lettuce
- Half a cucumber
- 1 large tomato
- sour cream or garlic mayo
- Fresh mint leaves
- Cajun seasoning
- A pack of pittas
There are enough ingredients here to make 6 kebabs. We made one each for the kids and two each for mum and dad!
Make your kebabs
Pre-heat the oven to 200c/180c for fan. Start by seasoning the meat (I left the seasoning off the kids portions)
- 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning
- Mix together and then spread over the chicken
- Chop up a small handful of mint leaves
- Put this into 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
- Mix together and then spread over the lamb
You can now put the meat onto a tray into the pre-heated oven, for 15 minutes.
While you are waiting for the meat to cook, you can prepare everything else. Cut up the lettuce and cucumber into strips then place to one side. Cut the large tomato into slices. Next you will need to cut the Pitta’s in half, make sure you open them out before lightly toasting them.
Once the meat is cooked, take the sour cream and spread on the inside of your pitta, add the lettuce and cucumber strips, place a tomato slice in each and then add your meat.
For the kids because they are still little I did a deconstructed version. So cut the pitta into slices and popped them on the plate, then I put the cucumber strips and tomato on their plates with a little sour cream dip. With the lamb and chicken I cut theirs into smaller strips rather than cubes to make them safer to eat.
