Spicy Chicken with Cucumber Yogurt

Spicy Chicken with Cucumber Yogurt

I am drooling right now! I’ve made this recipe two days ago, but I didn’t have any time to go trough the photos until today and now… now I’m hungry as an animal in the winter. I just can’t stare away from this grilled chicken.

And the taste! Unbelievable! All the senses come to life when you eat this, it’s like a war going on in your mouth. The hotness is trying to invade, but the fresh cucumber yogurt says no, it’s something out of this world!

But, now that I think about it, I don’t remember if I ever asked you if you like your food hot and spicy. If you’re not a big fan of hot food, for this recipe just dump the chili powder and season with less black pepper. The paprika will bring a lot of flavor and sweetness to the plate, so you don’t have to worry the dish will be a failure. As far as I see it, you can’t go wrong with this dish.

So, do you like hot and spicy food?

Spicy Chicken with Cucumber Yogurt

Spicy Chicken with Cucumber Yogurt
Serves: 2
  • 1 chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium size cucumber
  • 1 lemon
  • 200 ml of yogurt
  • chili powder
  • paprika powder
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • pita bread
  • parsley or coriander leaves
  1. Heat a grilling pan on medium-high heat and spray it with a bit of oil. Take your chicken slices and season them well with salt and pepper and then sprinkle a generous quantity of paprika powder and chili powder on both sides.
  2. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for a couple of minutes on each side. Being thin it will be ready in no time. When it's done let the chicken rest for a couple of minutes and then slice it roughly into cubes.
  3. Take the cucumber, peel it, halve it and de-seed it. Roughly cube it and place the pieces in a bowl. Pour the yogurt on top and season with salt and pepper. Halve the lemon and squeeze the juice from one half in the bowl. Stir so the ingredients mix together.
  4. Place the chicken on a pita bread, drizzle the cucumber yogurt and top everything with parsley or coriander leaves. That simple. Bon appetit!


  1. Absolutely love hot and spicy foods! That chicken pairs well with a cool cucumber yogurt on the side. Mouthwatering 🙂

  2. I just got hungry :)))
