  2. Add the olive oil to loosen into a paste. You may have to scrape the bowl down a couple of times to make sure it all gets blended enough.

  3. Empty the paste into a medium size bowl and tip the chicken into and give it all a good squish about. Cover and leave for at least an hour in the fridge.

  4. Thread the chicken onto your skewers and BBQ these beauties for about 5 mins. Obvs it depends on the temp of the BBQ but just cut one through to make sure it's cooked.

Recipe Notes

If the British Summer lets you down then feel free to bake in the oven at  200C for 10-15 mins. Again cut one open to check it's cooked through.

I use metal skewers for all my BBQing and also have a square wire cage that I shut them all in for easy turning.....Can't be doing with all that twiddling.....
