Recipe

Ideal for a summer barbecue.

Yield: Makes 6 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins, Plus Marinating
Cooking time: 10 Mins

Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts 6 oz (175g) each, cubed
  • 2 red onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Zest and juice of 3 lemons
  • ¼ tsp crumbled saffron threads, dissolved in 1 tbsp of boiling water
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • Chopped basil, to garnish

Special equipment:

  • 12 wooden or metal skewers

Directions

1. Put the chicken and onions in a large nonmetallic bowl. Whisk together the oil, lemon zest, the juice from 2 lemons and the saffron water. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over the chicken and onions, mix gently, and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

2. Mix the butter and the remaining lemon juice together.

3. Place an oiled rack 6 in (15cm) from the heat. Preheat the broiler, and thread the chicken onto the skewers. Broil, turning occasionally, brushing with the butter mixture, about 10 minutes. Garnish with the basil and serve hot.

Notes

Caution: to prevent burning, soak wooden skewers in water for 30 mins

    What happens to the two red onions? Thrown away with the marinade?
