JO’s Chicken Kebabs

From Jamie’s Kitchen .


serves: 4
preparation time: 1½ hrs
cooking time: 10 mins


  • 500g chicken breasts, cut into 2½cm cubes
  • 4 courgettes, sliced thinly lengthwise
  • 4 long skewers (or fresh rosemary sticks, lower leaves removed)
  • 1 hfl fresh coriander
  • 1 hfl fresh mint
  • 3 cloves garlic, skinned
  • 6 spring onions
  • 1 red chilli
  • zest & juice of 1 lemon
  • salt & pepper
  • olive oil


Blanch the courgette strips briefly in boiling water to make them supple. Drain them and allow them to cool.

In a food processor, blitz together the coriander, mint, garlic, spring onions, chilli, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper. Loosen the paste with a little olive oil. Add this marinade paste to the chicken pieces and mix well. Allow to sit for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

When you’re ready to go (preferably with a barbecue), thread the skewers with courgette strips woven between chicken pieces. Grill for between 5 and 10 minutes turning regularly until cooked.
