Healthy Homemade (Chicken Optional) Shish Kebabs
Not sure about you but I really enjoy a TASTY kebab
Especially gyros and the like
Of course back in the day I would have enjoyed a 'donor' kebab after a night out haha
Although that stuff isn't even meat which is why it should be an occasional thing. That said, these days, if ordering from a takeaway, I actually prefer a shish kebab. You know actual chunks of REAL meat grilled with salad and a pitta
Which isn't such a bad choice of takeaway until you start adding those sauces (and all the hidden nasty and cals)
Thing is, if you've been following for a while you'll know that the warrior wellness system is about sustainable nutrition, as we both know diets don't work, alongside regular exercise...
Which is why I have my own healthier recipes for some of these occasional foods which means I can consume the foods I enjoy daily which of courses makes it sustainable!
Above, homemade chicken shish (marinade) kebab with homemade tzatziki sauce and flatbread - Although I also tend to make my own homemade tortilla wraps (check out the Mexican food post) so I can have these kebabs as wraps.
Which therefore ALSO makes them even more natural (less processed) than pitta's and breads etc
OMG!!! Honestly brilliant, so tasty and easy to make. Thank you! – Ben Herbert
Below, little look at (and message) from Ben one of our online wellness warriors enjoying this kebab recipe
I'm a big believer in not having any food restrictions. Diets don't work we BOTH know that
It's going to be really tough to stick to a diet if you don't like the foods, right?
Also, the fact that I help coach a LOT of busy professionals who want to take back control of their overall wellbeing
So they look, move, and feel great and sustain it
Therefore, enjoying your food and meals is VITAL for ongoing success and consistency
Shish Kebabs (Chicken/meat optional)
1/3 cup soya sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon Italian herbs
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Mix and cover your marinated chicken (meat of choice) for minimum of 4 hours and ideally overnight.

Cut your meat of choice into kebab size chunks and add to oven/grill proof dish
I will then grill the meat, with a little of the marinade cover, over medium heat to make more of an authentic kebab
Turn regularly until the meat is fully cooked (12-15 mins?) so as to get that charcoal effect
Cut red onion and peppers (or veg/salad of choice)
Now fill your pitta, flatbread, or wrap (tortilla wrap video below) with meat and salad
Add a generous amount of the tzatziki sauce (below)
Tzatziki Sauce (kebab dip)
Finely chop and add garlic and cucumber to plain yogurt, alongside a little salt/pepper and lemon juice and then marinade in the fridge for a minimum of one hour!

There you have it...
