Chicken And Veg Kebab 0203 600x580

This chicken kebab recipe is simply delicious! Chicken glazed in honey and soy makes the perfect plate for a potluck dinner or relaxed meal with friends.


500 g chicken thigh or chicken breast fillets, chopped into 2 cm chunks
1/2 red or green capsicum, chopped into 2 cm chunks
1/2 medium zucchini, chopped into 2 cm chunks
12 button mushrooms
12 cherry tomatoes
12 pieces pineapple (canned and drained or fresh pineapple cut into 2 cm chunks)
Honey and Soy Marinade

2 tablespoons sweet soy sauce or add 1 tablespoon brown sugar to regular soy sauce
1 tablespoon of honey
1 clove garlic, crushed

Thread chicken chunks onto skewers that have been pre-soaked in water (prevent burning on BBQ) alternating with a vegetable and one piece of pineapple per skewer.
Mix the sweet soy sauce, honey and garlic in a bowl.
Marinate the prepared chicken and vegetable skewer in the honey and soy mixture for 30 minutes in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
Pre-heat grill or oven to 180ºC and cook for 20-25 minutes. Alternatively heat the BBQ on a medium heat and cook for 20-25 minutes.
Test the chicken is cooked by inserting a clean skewer into the centre to check that the juices run clear (if pink, cook a little longer).
