This is a quick and healthy version of the takeaway favourite. No grease, just clean, fresh ingredients. When you see the takeaway, keep on driving and make this bad boy when you get home instead.


Quantity Ingredient
1 large skinless chicken breast
olive oil, for cooking
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 wholemeal pitta bread
2 teaspoons mayonnaise
1 handful mixed salad leaves
3-4 cherry tomatoes, quartered
sea salt
black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Heat a ridged grill pan until hot, drizzle the chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the pan and cook, without moving it, for 3–4 minutes, until you have griddle marks. Turn it over, transfer to a baking tray, squeeze the lemon juice over it and roast for around 15 minutes, until cooked through. (Alternatively, simply roast the chicken in the oven for 20 minutes). Set aside to rest for a few minutes.
  2. Warm the pitta bread and cut it in half to make 2 pockets. Slice the chicken. Line each pitta pocket with a little mayonnaise, add some salad leaves and tomatoes and half the chicken. Repeat with the other pitta pocket and serve immediately.

Good for:

  • Blood sugar management

Clever combination:

  • This is great for stabilising blood sugar, whether due to stress, weight management or more serious issues such as Type 2 diabetes. The combination of high-quality complex carbohydrates and lean proteins create a meal that releases its energy slowly, thus drip-feeding blood sugar and keeping levels stable.
