Lekker Lemon Lunch


Makes 8

Hands-on time: 30 minutes

Hands-off time: 30 minutes


For the naan:

3 cups self-raising wholewheat flour

½ tsp salt (optional)

1½ cups double cream plain yoghurt

For the quick red onion pickle:

1 small red onion, finely sliced

2 tbsp Brookes Tru-Lem Lemon Juice

1 tsp sugar

For the lemon & herb chicken:

4 chicken breasts, cut into 2cm cubes

1 tsp each salt and pepper

4 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp dried rosemary

4 tbsp Brookes Tru-Lem Lemon Juice

Serving suggestion:


Cucumber yoghurt sauce

Fresh chopped chives


For the naan:

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the self-raising wholewheat flour, salt, if using, and yoghurt to form a dough.

2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 8 minutes or until smooth.

3. Divide the dough into 8 evenly-sized balls. Using a floured rolling pin, flatten the balls into 12cm disks. *Chef’s Tip: Use a sturdy bottle if you don’t have a rolling pin.

4. Heat a medium-sized oiled pan. Once hot, place a naan disk into the pan and toast each side until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. *Chef’s Tip: Brush with garlic butter if desired. For the red onion pickle:

5. Add the sliced onion, ⅓ cup hot water, Brookes Tru-Lem Lemon Juice and sugar to a small bowl. Set aside for 30 minutes to allow the flavours to infuse and strain the liquid for assembling later. For the lemon & herb chicken

6. Add the oil to a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the chicken, salt, pepper, crushed garlic and dried rosemary and sauté until lightly browned and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in the Brookes Tru-Lem Lemon Juice for a fresh taste and turn off the heat. To assemble:

7. Layer the rocket, lemon & herb chicken and red pickled onions on one side of each naan.

8. Drizzle over the cucumber yoghurt sauce and garnish with chives. Fold up the naans, serve and ENJOY!

½ cups pineapple juice

10 mint leaves, plus extra for the garnish
