Preheat barbecue for high heat; lightly oil the grate.
Whisk together the coriander, cumin, cardamom, chilli powder, steak seasoning, paprika and turmeric in a bowl; whisk in juice of 1/2 lemon, garlic and 3 tablespoons olive oil to form a paste. Coat the chicken breasts with the spice paste.
Cook chicken breasts on the preheated barbecue until juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink in the centre, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate and cool for 1 to 2 minutes; slice thinly.
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Stir onion and peppers into the hot olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
Stir together Greek yogurt, tahini, juice of remaining 1/2 lemon and remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil in a bowl until smooth; season with salt.
Place pittas on the barbecue until heated through and lightly charred on the outside, about 1 minute per side. To assemble each sandwich, place some sliced chicken on each pitta; top with some of the pepper and onion mixture and a good dollop of yogurt tahini sauce.
