Turkey Kebabs

Who doesn't love a kebab? We normally associate them with late nights, a few drinks, and rolling from the pub into the kebab shop to finish off the night. Its a right of passage when your out partying 🤣 These are a little healthier, and cheaper, as I'm using Turkey breast but you could use chicken breasts or thighs if you prefer. I've wrapped it in a garlic flatbread(recipe on the website) and added side salad and Tzatziki dip (recipe on the website) too, but again you could serve with chips or rice. Its totally adaptable to suit your tastes and budget. Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
