I love grilling! It is such an amazing way of cooking – fast, easy and full of flavours!

This recipe for chicken skewers is perfect for indoor and outdoor cooking. For those who don’t eat meat – it also works well with shrimps.

BTW, I found this recipe in my new cookbook (“The Complete Low-Fat Cookbook”), which I bought last week in a local charity shop for just ₤1! Those shops are worth checking – sometimes you can find there almost bright new cookbooks or incredible, out-of-print vintage ones. And the best thing about them is – they cost almost nothing!

Grilled chicken & vegetable skewers

Serves 3                          

You will need:

2 chicken breasts, diced

12  cherry tomatoes

12 small cup mushrooms

1 yellow pepper

2 baby courgettes

2 garlic cloves

rind of 1 lemon, grated

2 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp fresh or dry oregano

1/2 tsp finally grated rosemary (optional)

salt & pepper

8 – 10 wooden skewers


Soak wooden skewers in cold water to prevent burning. Combine all the ingredients together and season with sea salt and freshly grated pepper. Toss well. Marinate for 1 hour or longer. Thread a piece of chicken onto each skewer, followed by a tomato, pepper, mushroom and then courgette. Repeat till the end of the skewer. Place the skewers on a hot grill or grill pan and cook for about 5 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked and the tomatoes shriveled slightly. Serve immediately with a green salad and roasted potato wedges.
