Foodie Friday – Chicken Skewers

Foodie Friday - Chicken Skewers

A super quick tip with this little dish is to marinate your chicken raw and freeze.

Then when you’ve planned this dish of dinner, defrost and cook – Simples. You can marinade big batches of your favourite dish in advance and stock up the freezer, I love to work this way so I can put blocks of time aside and get all the prep out of the way, waaaay in advance.

Prep Time :: 20 minutes plus marinading time    Cooking Time :: 20-25 minutes
Serves :: 4 serving
Ingredients ::
  • 4 chicken breast cut up into chunks so it’s easy to skewer
  • Juice of two lemons
  • 1 stick of lemon grass, crushed up
  • 1 red chilli chopped as finely as possible
  • A bunch of fresh coriander finely chopped
  • 20 cherry tomatoes sliced in half
  • Ground black pepper and a grind of sea salt
Directions :
  1. Preheat your oven to gas mark 6 (You can grill these skewers, you choose what’s right for you. I prefer to oven cook so I can wander off and do other stuff whilst my skewers are cooking.)
  2. Put the chicken, lemon grass, coriander, chilli, black pepper, salt, and lemon juice into a bowl, toss together and cover well. Leave in the fridge to marinate for a min of 30 minutes. (I personally do this over night or freeze marinaded)
  3. Once the chicken is marinated thread the chicken and tomatoes onto the skewers and rest on a baking tray.
  4. Pour and remaining marinade over the chicken skewers and bake 20-25 minutes

Serve with a lovely green side salad and sweet potato wedges.
