Kickin’ Chicken Kebabs – 8sp

I’ve had skewers in my kitchen drawer for months now so thought this weekend I would get them out. I decided to change up a recipe I previously posted (my Sticky Chicken Wings) and change it up, lowering the propoints even further. The result was delicious. I served these kebabs this time with 40g of rice (for an extra 4sp) however you could also make these with Butternut Squash chips for a 0sp option!

Ingredients

Serves 2 = 8sp (previously 9pp) per person for 2 kebabs per person

Marinade

1 onion, peeled and grated

1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed

1 tsp English mustard

1 tbsp dark soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce

2 tbsp honey and Worcestershire sauce

3 tbsp tomato ketchup

Half tsp of paprika

Good pinch of chilli powder

2 tbsp flour, seasoned

Other

2 x 165g chicken breasts cut in to large chunks (you will get 4 or 5 chunks of veg per kebab)

4 x wooden skewers, soaked in water

1 x pepper, courgette and red onion, diced into large chunks

1 lemon, quartered

Rice/Salad and/or Butternut Squash Chips to serve (add extra points where required)

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 Celcius and begin by making the marinade.

Spray a saucepan with low Kal cooking spray and fry the onions and garlic for around 10 minutes until they are nice and soft (add a little water if you need it to make sure the garlic doesn’t burn). Then add the rest of the marinade ingredients, give a stir and simmer for a few minutes until you can see the sauce getting sticky.

Then spray a baking tray with low Kal spray. Roll the chicken lightly in the seasoned flour and then coat in the marinade. Construct the kebab by layering a cube of each vegetable followed by a chunk of chicken. I had four chunks of chicken on each skewer.  Top with any remaining marinade and pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes, turning regularly. Serve with a nice salad and some butternut squash chips if you fancy.

Top tip – pop a food bag over your hand when making the kebabs to stop getting sticky fingers
