Mediterranean Chicken Skewers

Print this Recipe
Serves: 4
90ml / 6 tbsp olive oil
45ml / 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
30ml / 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
2 medium courgettes
1 long thin aubergine
300g / 11oz boneless chicken, cut into 5cm / 2in cubes
12-16 pickled onions
1 pepper, red or yellow, cut into 5cm / 2in squares
salt and black pepper

In a small bowl mix the oil with the lemon juice, garlic and basil. Season with salt and pepper.

Slice the courgettes and aubergine lengthways into strips 5mm / 1/4in thick. Cut them crossways about two-thirds of the way along their length. Discard the shorter length. Wrap half the chicken pieces with the courgette slices, and the other half with the aubergine slices.

Prepare the skewers by alternating the chicken, onions and pepper pieces. Lay the prepared skewers on a platter, and sprinkle with the flavoured oil. Leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the grill, or prepare a barbecue.

Grill or barbecue for about 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender, turning the skewers occasionally. Serve hot.
