Orange & Honey-Glazed Sweet Potato & Chicken Skewers


Orange & Honey-Glazed Sweet Potato & Chicken Skewers

For the skewers
  1. To make the marinade, put the chillies, spring onions, thyme and ginger in a large bowl. Add the honey, orange juice, black pepper and mix well. Coat the chicken in the marinade, cover and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  2. In the meantime cook the cubed sweet potatoes in boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  3. When the chicken has marinated for long enough, drain and reserve the marinade. Build your skewers starting with a cube of sweet potato, followed by a piece of chicken and a bay leaf. Repeat this pattern until each skewer is full. When all the skewers have been prepared, season well with salt.
  4. Cook on the BBQ or a griddle pan until the juices from the chicken run clear, turning frequently.
  5. While the chicken is cooking, pour the marinade in a pan, add the honey or sugar and bring to the boil. As soon as it starts boiling, turn the heat down and reduce the marinade to a thick syrup, then remove from the heat and keep warm.
  6. When the chicken is cooked, coat it immediately with the cooked marinade and serve with salad on the side.
