First, prepare your marinade.
You will notice that some items in this recipe, like yogurt, garlic, and cucumber, show up more than once on your list. That’s because some of those ingredients are meant to flavour your meat before cooking.
Combine the 1/2 C of Greek yogurt with your Cumin, Aniseed, and your 5 cloves of crushed garlic. Smother your raw meat (either chicken breast, or a nice cheap cut of lamb or beef – the marinade will make any cut of meat nice and tender) with this spiced, garlic yogurt mixture, and seal in a sandwich bag. Massage and squish that bag of marinade and meat around until everything is nicely coated. Let the meat marinate for 4-24 hours.
