Asian Citrus Chicken Skewers

prep 5 mins, plus marinating cook 20 mins
  • 500 g (1 lb) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese 5-spice powder
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • mixed vegetables (carrots, spring onions, radishes), cut into strips, to serve (optional)

Place the chicken, lemon rind and juice, 5-spice powder and soy sauce in a bowl. Stir to combine, cover, then leave to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Thread the chicken pieces on to 4 presoaked wooden skewers, pushing them tightly together. Grill for 10 minutes under a preheated moderate grill. Turn the skewers, baste with any remaining marinade, and grill for a further 10 minutes. Serve on a bed of vegetables, if liked.
