Ingredients

For the Green Chicken Kebabs

  • Finely grated zest of 2 unwaxed lemons and juice of 1
  • 75ml olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 50g bunch of basil
  • 50g bunch of flat-leaf parsley
  • 25g bunch of coriander
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 4 free-range skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 3cm cubes

Method

Preparing the Green Chicken Kebabs

1

Combine all the ingredients, except the chicken, in a liquidizer and blend until smooth.

2

Put the chicken into a large bowl, pour the marinade over and toss to coat. Don’t season at this stage; the salt will draw the moisture from the chicken and make it tough. Cover with clingfilm and chill for 4 hours or overnight if possible.

3

Remove the chicken from the fridge an hour before cooking and preheat the barbecue for direct grilling.

4

Thread the chicken onto skewers and grill the kebabs for 10 minutes until cooked through, turning occasionally.

5

Transfer to a warm plate to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

You will need metal or wooden skewers; if you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in warm water for at least an hour.
