This is a great barbecue dish. These can be found served almost every where here in southern Spain and the flavours are fantastic. They most commonly use pork, which I love also, but these are chicken. They are traditionally called Pinchos Morunos in these parts and it would not be a barbecue without them.
Makes 6 Chicken Skewers
2 large boneless & skinless chicken breast, cut into strops or cubes. Whatever you prefer.
Juice of 2 lemons
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons of olive oil
½ teaspoon of turmeric
½ teaspoon of sweet paprika
½ teaspoon of cumin
½ teaspoon of ginger
Fresh ground pepper and sea salt
Mix chicken together with all ingredients. Stir, cover and refrigerate for a few hours. When ready to cook, remove from fridge and push the chicken lengthwise onto skewers.
Preheat the barbecue to medium to high heat. Cook chicken for about 8 minutes per side or until done. Pour over extra marinade while cooking. Do not overcook the chicken or it will by dry.
Goes oh so well with any salad dish!
