Ready in only 15 minutes! The most juicy and delicious chicken breasts, with an amazing tahini and honey sauce! Tahini is a paste, made from ground, sesame seeds, that is commonly used in Greek cuisine.



  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yogurt
  • 4 pita breads


  1. Wash thoroughly the chicken breasts and dry them with a paper towel.
  2. Use a knife to cut the chicken breasts into large pieces (each one 3-4 pieces).
  3. Place a large saucepan on high heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Sauté the chicken breasts, for 3-4 minutes on each side, until nicely coloured. Add the soya sauce and stir. Sauté for 1 more minute, until cooked through (there should be no sign of pink). If the pieces are thick, turn the heat down and cook a little bit longer.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and add the tahini and honey and stir well. Let the chicken rest for 2 minutes and serve with a full spoon of yogurt on top. Serve with rice or pita breads.
  5. To prepare the pita breads, use a cooking brush to oil the pita breads on both sides and season with salt and oregano. Place a large oven tray (upside down) at the bottom of the oven and place the pita breads on top of the tray. Bake in preheated oven at 250C for 1-2 minutes.
