Sweet and Spicy Chicken Skewers

Sweet and Spicy Skewers

Sweet and Spicy Skewers

About 1 kg chicken breast cubed (about 1 inch on each side)

4 tablespoons oil

1/3 cup honey, silan or Golden syrup (available in specialty stores that stock English or South African products)

1/3 cup soy sauce

2-3 cloves of garlic crushed

1 teaspoon black pepper

½ teaspoon cumin powder

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 bay leaves

Juice of half a lemon

How to do it

1. Mix all the ingredients (except for the chicken) together in a medium sized bowl.

2. Add the chicken pieces, mix through thoroughly, cover and leave overnight in the fridge or for at least 6 hours.

3. Thread onto wooden skewers that you’ve soaked for about 5 minutes in water (this prevents them from burning on the grill)

4. Place on the grill for a few minutes each side, until they are cooked (don’t overcook, but make sure they are all cooked through)

Serve with lots of fresh salads.
