Chicken kebabs

10 minutes (20 minutes)
Serves 4
  • 8 x 23cm bamboo skewers
  • 750g skinless chicken breast fillets, trimmed of all visible fat
  • 440g can sliced pineapple in juice, well drained
  • 1 large red capsicum, cut into 3cm pieces
  • 1 red onion, cut into 3cm pieces
  • Canola cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon salt and sugar reduced barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 100g mixed salad leaves
  • 250g punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, chopped
  • 2 cups steamed jasmine rice, to serve
  1. Soak skewers in cold water for 1 hour. This will prevent them burning on the barbecue.

  3. Cut the pineapple slices into 3cm pieces.
  4. Thread the chicken, pineapple, capsicum and onion onto bamboo skewers.
  5. Preheat a barbecue hot plate to medium-high and spray with cooking oil. Add kebabs and cook for about 8 to10 minutes, turning occasionally until chicken is cooked.
  6. Combine barbecue sauce with water in a small bowl. Brush over kebabs. Remove from barbecue. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  7. Meanwhile, toss salad leaves, tomatoes and cucumber in a large bowl.
  8. Serve kebabs with rice and salad.
