    The chicken is delicious. B didn’t like the relish at all. It was not my favorite, but I would definitely make the chicken again.

    Delicious! The marinade was sweet, smoky and charred beautifully on the bbq. I was concerned that the chilli relish would be too hot but it was just right.

    Very good. Used chicken breasts, Lebanese flatbread, labne, lettuce, tomatoes, and onions for wraps. I only had time to marinate for about 1 1/2 hours, would recommend more. The relish is delicious.

    Equally lovely with chips.

    This was very easy and very delicious. I marinated the chicken the night before cooking, which brings it into the weeknight cooking realm. Like Foodycat, I served with pitas and yogurt, and threw in some tomatoes and cucumbers for good measure, and it was not too spicy.

    Love this - we had it in warmed pitta bread wraps with a dollop of yoghurt.
