Honey Lime and Chilli Chicken Kebab

Finally the most desired British summer is here, the smell of grilled meat is in the air. No more dark and gloomy days. Sunshine means happiness and time to enjoy our life. An ideal weather to go outside and have BBQ with friends and family. 

After work on weekdays, I am more than happy to cook dinner and happily do the washing up. Though, I am always tempted to call my local curry house for a chicken madras, pilau rice and a garlic naan bread takeaway. I have done this so many times. 

Last weekend, I bought 500g of chicken breast fillets which needed to be eaten because of the used by date. I really don't feel comfortable to use cooking ingredients after used by date. So, I opted for a rather simple, quick and mouth watering succulent honey lime and chilli chicken kebab recipe. I hope you will enjoy this kebab as much as I did.


What you need
500g skinless, boneless chicken breasts
3 tbsp soy sauce 
2 tsp honey 
1 tbsp olive/sunflower/vegetable oil
juice of one lime 
2 garlic cloves, minced 
2 tsp paprika 
1 tsp cayenne pepper 
1 tsp tomato puree 
red chilli flakes, to taste 
2 tbsp coriander 


What to do
  • In a small bowl, combine your ingredients
  • mix thoroughly
  • pour marinade over chicken breasts and turn to coat. 
  • cover and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour.
  • grill on medium high heat for 6 to 8 minutes per side, until juices run clear
  • serve immediately
