M E T H O D :

1. Mix the lemon juice with the paprika in a glass bowl. Dice the chicken breasts into reasonably large chunks, then turn them in the juice and paprika and set aside for around a quarter of an hour or so.

2. Meanwhile, mix the marinade ingredients together and once the 15 minutes is up add to the chicken. Give everything a good mix, then cover and chill for at least 1 hr – the longer you leave it the better the infusion of flavour.

3. We cooked the chicken on the Wolf bake stone which you can purchase for a Wolf here – heat the Wolf oven to 285C and add the chicken pieces directly to the bake stone. To avoid staining use baking sheet to protect the stone. If you’re not using a bake stone kit, you can simply grill the chicken pieces using a rack over a baking tray. Brush over a little oil and grill for 8 mins on each side or until lightly charred and completely cooked through. You will need to keep a close eye!

4. Serve on baked / grilled naan breads with Greek yogurt, watercress, chopped chilli and coriander – a squeeze of lime is also really good.
