Honey Mustard Chicken Skewers

One thing these skewers don't lack is flavour! Honey mustard is such a delicious and faultless combo, we also add a mixture of herbs for a real savoury hit.

INGREDIENTS
  • 400-500g chicken breast, thighs or tenderloins (cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter or olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp of dried or 2 Tbsp of fresh chopped herbs (we used rosemary, oregano and thyme)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • Salt and pepper
METHOD
  1. Combine the honey, mustard, butter or olive oil, herbs, garlic and salt and pepper into a dish large enough to fit the chicken. 
  2. Add the chicken and mix well making sure you’ve coated all the chicken in the marinade. Marinate overnight or for at least an hour. 
  3. Pop onto skewers and cook on the BBQ for 15-20 minutes or so turning often, so they get nice and crispy on all sides.
VARIATIONS

For a vegetarian option, swap the chicken for  halloumi, capsicum, zucchini and red onion.

Ingredients

  • 150g halloumi (cut into bite sized cubes)
  • 2 red capsicums (cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 2 zucchinis (cut into bite sized rounds)
  • 1 small red onion (cut into wedges)

Method

  1. Combine the same marinade as the chicken, toss through halloumi and veggies.
  2. Pop onto skewers and cook on the BBQ or grill for 15 minutes or so, turning often, so the veggies cook through and the halloumi goes crispy on all sides.
TIPS
  • If you don’t have a BBQ you can leave the chicken breast or thighs whole and cook them in the oven for 20 minutes for breast and 30-40 minutes for thighs or so until golden brown on the outside and cooked through.
  • If you are using wooden skewers make sure soak them in water for a minimum of 30 minutes. This prevents the skewers from burning.


SERVE WITH
  • Serve these skewers alongside seasonal veg, or fresh garden salad.
  • Our creamy Yoghurt Tahini Sauce would also be delicious condiment to have alongside these skewers.
