  1. Step 1

    Combine the chicken, yoghurt and harissa in a bowl. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour to develop the flavours.
  2. Step 2

    To make the chilli-tomato sauce, place the tomato, chilli, garlic, paprika, lemon rind, lemon juice and honey in a food processor. Process until smooth. With the motor running, gradually add the oil in a thin, steady stream until combined. Season. Cover and place in the fridge to chill.
  3. Step 3

    Thread the chicken evenly among 12 metal or soaked bamboo skewers. Heat a greased barbecue grill or chargrill on high. Cook the skewers for 6 mins each side or until lightly charred and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside for 5 mins to rest.
  4. Step 4

    Combine the onion, mint, parsley and dill in a small bowl. Divide pita and chicken among serving plates. Serve with the parsley mixture and chilli-tomato sauce.

    Serve with Greek-style yoghurt and lemon wedges
