Tandoori chicken bites
A surprisingly mildly spiced dish, perfect for a starter, lunchbox or party. It goes well with a crunchy seasonal salad. A healthy chicken nugget! 

190 full-fat Greek yogurt
2 tbsp garlic-infused rapeseed oil, plus extra for brushing
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp chilli powder (optional)
5cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
Freshly ground black pepper
480g/4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped into bite-size pieces
Lime wedges, to serve
Fresh coriander leaves, to garnish

Mix most of the yoghurt with all the ingredients except the chicken pieces in a large bowl. Add the chicken and stir until it is all well coated in the marinade. Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Preheat the grill to a medium-high heat. Soak 8 wooden skewers in a cold water for 15 minutes.

Thread the chicken onto the skewers, then place under the grill and cook, turning and brushing with oil at least once, for 10-15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.

Serve hot with lime wedges and fresh coriander leaves and the rest of the yoghurt as a dip on the side.
