Instructions

  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl and mix well with the chicken, ensuring each chicken piece is coated well. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour or up to a day.
  2. Thread a piece of chicken onto a skewer, followed by a chorizo slice, bell pepper and onion slice Repeat until you use up all the chicken.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan. Once the oil is hot, put in about 4 skewers depending on the size of your pan. Let the chicken cook on high flame for a minute on all sides to sear all the juices.
  4. After the pieces are seared, lower the heat to medium, and let the chicken cook on each side for about 10-15 minutes in total, until the chicken is cooked through.  To check the chicken is cooked, slice opens the largest piece and make sure it’s no pink in the middle.
  5. Sprinkle with fresh coriander, then serve with salad.

Notes

  • If you’re using the bamboo skewers, please soak them in water for at least 15 minutes.
  • For alternative cooking methods, these chicken skewers can be grilled or baked in the oven at 180 degrees celsius for 15 - 20 minutes, until the edges of the chorizo are crispy and the chicken is cooked through.
  • You can use skinless chicken thigh fillets instead of chicken breasts fillets for these skewers. I find chicken thighs juicer so this is my preference nowadays. Cook the chicken thigh fillets for about 20 to 30 minutes.
