2015-03-12 15:30

Cape Town – Popular TV chef Siba Mtongana is back with a new show!

Siba’s Table Fast Feasts showcases five fast and fabulous feasts.

On the first episode, Weekday Wonderful Siba made an entire fast weekday feast with a Middle Eastern vibe.

She’s rustled up incredible lemony chicken kebabs, exotic harissa tabblouleh and two fabulous dips, baba ganoush and roasted red pepper hummus both made with lots of shortcuts.

And a stunning, speedy dessert, luscious labneh with berries.

This is a perfect feast for when you’re against the clock.

If you missed it here’s that tasty chicken kebab recipe:

If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in warm water for a few minutes to prevent them from burning.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 8–10 minutes
Serves 4

Chicken Kebab
4 skinless, chicken fillets, cubed  
4 teaspoon za’atar
4 teaspoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 lemons, sliced
2 lemons to halve for garnish

To serve
8 bought mini pitas
Flat leaf parsley, a bunch  
1. Wrap the pitas in foil and put into 200 degree oven for 10 minutes to warm
2. Combine the za’atar, garlic and olive oil and pour over the chicken. Toss to combine
3. Thread the chicken onto metal skewers, with a folded slice of lemon in between each piece.   Each breast makes two so 8 kebabs
4. Heat griddle and cook the chicken for 6-8 minutes, 3-4 minutes on each side - rotating and pressing down the skewers to make sure they cook evenly.
5. Remove from heat and put on a platter - if you are not using straight away, cover with foil. Garnish with halved lemons and a bunch of parsley.
