Hello #LoyalRoyals

Have you tried the new addition to our dip range – Pesto Princess Tzatziki?

As with all our products, we’ve developed the most creamy Tzatziki you’ll ever taste but without using any added preservatives, thickeners or flavourants. Trust us, this is no easy task.

When you’re planning your meals, consider adding our Pesto Princess Tzatziki to the shopping list. You’ll find it sitting next to the hummus at Wellness Warehouse and top SPAR stores in the Western Cape. In fact, it just got better. Our friends at Mother City Fish will even deliver it to your door.

Keep talking to us, especially in these extraordinary times of isolation.

You’ll need

½ lemon
½ cup plain yoghurt
Salt and pepper
500 g skinless, deboned chicken thighs or breasts – if you would like to leave out the meat, sub in roasted veg instead.
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tub Pesto Princess Tzatziki
4 pita breads
Handful cocktail tomatoes, quartered
¼ red onion, thinly sliced – pickled red onion

How to

1. Squeeze the lemon juice into a large mixing bowl and combine with the yoghurt, salt and pepper. Add the chicken pieces and coat well. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight.
2. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium to high heat and add one tablespoon of olive oil. Cook the chicken in batches, making sure not to crowd the pan. Shake off any excess yoghurt mixture before cooking. Cook for about five minutes a side or until cooked through.
3. Gently warm the pita breads in the oven for a few minutes (you can also microwave them for 30 seconds) as this allows you to shape them more easily.
4. To assemble, generously spoon Pesto Princess Tzatziki on top of the warmed pita bread. Top with tomatoes, red onion and sliced chicken. Fold the pitas and wrap in parchment paper. Serve immediately.
