Lemon and honey BBQ chicken skewers


  1. Whisk together the oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, honey, a good pinch of sea salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper in a medium bowl and add the chicken, cut into large chunks.
  2. Cover, and allow to marinate chilled for at least 2 hours.
  3. While you're waiting for the barbecue to heat up soak the skewers in cold water. This will prevent them catching fire while you're trying to barbecue.
  4. When the barbecue is ready to cook, divide the chicken pieces between the three skewers, and cook, turning occasionally until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Baste the chicken, using a pastry brush with the leftover marinade every few minutes to make sure the chicken keeps moist and has maximum flavour.
