Grotto’s Spicy Chicken and Pineapple Braai Kebabs

Makes 6 kebabs

Looking for something different to spice up your Festive Season braai menu? A braai doesn’t have to be all chops, wors and sides and can really give you a break from the usual meal prep on a stove. This one will surprise you – it’s fantastically yummy!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • ½ a lemon, juiced
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 12 skinless chicken thigh fillets, cut into 3cm chunks
  • A large handful of mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1-2 red chillies, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp soft light brown sugar 2 tbsp
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 ripe pineapple, peeled and cut into thick round slices, then into 3cm chunks (excluding the hard core)

Method

STEP 1
Combine the paprika, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil with some salt. Mix to a paste and combine with the diced chicken, mixing well. Set aside to marinate for 1 hour.

STEP 2
Combine the sugar and lime juice in a large bowl. Add the pineapple slices and mix well, making sure every slice is coated.

STEP 3
Divide the chicken meat into six portions, ready to place onto six large skewers.

STEP 4
Skewer the chicken and pineapple pieces onto the skewers, alternating the meat and the fruit. Once your braai fire is ready, cook the kebabs over direct heat for 20-25 minutes, turning regularly, or until cooked through and lightly charred at the edges.

STEP 5
Top the cooked kebabs with the mint, sesame seeds and red chillies. Serve.

Enjoy! #nomnomnom
