Today was Hubby’s RDO so we’ve had a very relaxing day together, sleeping in, snoozing in the afternoon and general fun with Daddy. The best thing about an RDO is it extends the weekend so with the aim of maintaining the relaxed atmosphere we love a BBQ to complete that feeling. Tonight we made one of our favourite meals, this is something we have at least once a week through summer and will be a fantastic addition to your repertoire. Oh & if you have a little rascal like us you can put them to work with the “Squishing” of the marinade into the chicken. If they’re a bit older you can get them to thread the meat onto the kebabs.
Chermoula Chicken Kebabs – Makes 8 kebabs
600g Chicken Thighs diced & fatty bits removed
Handful of flat leaf Italian Parsley & Coriander, chopped
2 tsp Ground Cumin
2 tsp Paprika
2 large Garlic cloves, diced
Zest & juice of 1 lemon
Salt & Pepper
3 Tbsp Olive oil
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and allow to marinate for at least 30 mins, ideally for 2 or more hours.
Prior to cooking, thread meat onto either bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water or metal skewers. BBQ for approx 5-7 mins on each side or until golden brown & cooked through.
Tonight we served ours with bread, a tomato & cucumber salad, black olives & hot homemade chips. We also have it with Rice, but these make a fantastic addition to any BBQ in fact you could triple your chermoula mix and use it to marinate BBQ Chops, chicken wings or chicken spare ribs as part of a platter.
