Method

 
Tzatziki:

Mix all your ingredients together and let it chill in the fridge.
Use any left over Tzatziki sauce within 2 days.

Chicken patties:

Use a food processor for the chicken patties.
Cut your chicken breasts in smaller chunks and mince it up in a food processor.
Transfer the meat to a large bowl and mix in the rest of the ingredients.
The meat can be sticky so keep a bowl of clean water next to you to dip your hands in. Wet your hands and form golf ball size chicken meatballs. Shape into patties and rest on a layer of cling wrap or a  silicon mat.
Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry your patties on both sides until golden brown and cooked through.

Complete the meal:

Place all your vegetables on your place, add your chicken patties, feta cheese and olives and dress it up with some Tzatziki sauce.

Tips:

No need to buy oatbran! Whiz up rolled oats in your food processor for a minute or two and store in an airtight container. Replace your breadcrumbs in your Meatloaf, Meatballs or Bobotie with oatbran as a healthy alternative.

Tzatziki goes well with any meat! Add it as a spread for pita breads, a tangy dip for raw veggie sticks or simply as a salad dressing.
