Chicken skewers are one of my go-to weeknight meals. I like to prep them ahead of time on a Sunday and then keep them in the fridge in an airtight container, so all I need to do come Monday night is to heat the grill and cook them up. This recipe has a gorgeous coconutty and turmeric flavour from my marinade range, or you can also make your own from scratch.

BALINESE COCONUT TURMERIC CHICKEN SKEWERS

PREP TIME

20 minutes

COOK TIME

25 minutes

SERVES

4

Ingredients

1kg chicken thighs, cut into chunks

½ bottle Balinese Coconut Turmeric Marinade, plus ¼ cup extra for basting (you can also make my from scratch version here)

3 small red onions, cut into wedges

2 capsicums, deseeded and cut into bite-sized pieces

16 large skewers

vegetable oil for grilling

coriander leaves to serve

 

Quick pickle salad:

1 carrot, cut into matchsticks

1 cucumber, thinly silced

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tsp sea salt

Steps

To make the quick pickle salad, combine the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well with your hands. Set aside while you assemble and cook the skewers. Salad can be kept in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Combine the chicken thighs with ½ the bottle of the Balinese Coconut Turmeric Marinade. Thread the chicken, onion and capsicum onto the skewers.

Preheat oven to 180°C/356°F.

Heat a grill plate, outdoor barbecue or large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Brush with the oil. Then cook skewers for 3-4 minutes each side or until both sides have some good colour. Brush with extra marinade as the skewers cook. Skewers don’t need to be completely cooked at this point. Transfer to a baking tray and finish cooking in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through.
