Father's Day Recipe: BBQ Skewers and Homemade Flatbreads

Find me on:

It's Father's Day tomorrow, and we can't think of a better way to show your dad some love than an afternoon sitting by the fire with a couple of beers and some good food. 

This is an easy recipe you can take your time over. The bread needs a little time to rest but other than that is straightforward - prep the rest of the food while you wait, then sit back with a beer and enjoy some quality time with your dad. Making your own is so worth it: there's something satisfyingly primal about making your own bread outdoors, and you'll be surprised at how easy it is. If you'd just like something super-quick, just swap in shop bought flatbreads (pita breads or naans would work well).

Homemade flatbreads with BBQ skewers


For the flatbreads

2 cups flour, plus more for dusting

1 cup Greek yoghurt


For the skewers

2 chicken breasts OR 1 block halloumi or tofu

200g mushrooms

1 x red or green pepper

1 red onion

For the marinade

tbps vegetable oil

1/4 cup BBQ sauce

1 clove garlic

1 tsp cayenne pepper

To serve

Yoghurt, chilli sauce and some chopped herbs



Mix the flour, salt and yoghurt in a bowl until it forms a sticky dough. Turn out on to a flat surface like a well-floured chopping board, and knead for five minutes or so until smooth and elastic. Place the ball of dough back in the bowl, cover and leave to rest for about 20 minutes.

While you're waiting, mix up the marinade and set aside. Chop the chicken/halloumi/tofu and veggies and thread onto skewers, alternating between chicken, pepper, mushroom and onion. Brush with the marinade and pile on a plate ready for cooking. Get your stove lit and stoke the fire!

To cook the flatbreads, heat a griddle or frying pan over the flames. Divide the dough into four pieces and roll out to about 1/8 inch thick. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Stack the breads on a plate and cover with a tea towel to keep warm.

To cook your skewers, secure them in a grill like the one pictured (you can cook them in an oiled frying pan if you haven't got a grill). If you're cooking on a Frontier or Frontier Plus, remove the top plate and place over the hole. Keep turning until cooked through.
