Try this tasty family recipe that the kids will love – you can even get them to help you make it! With the chicken providing a good source of protein, and the valuable addition of an array of vegetables, this can provide a healthy meal that is suitable on both a summer or winter’s evening. Serve the kebabs with salad in the summer, and rice or potato in the winter for a more warming dish.

Serves 4


4 chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
Red peppers
Wooden skewers

For the marinade:
7 tablespoons each of: olive oil, ketchup and sweet chilli dipping sauce
4 tablespoons each of: honey, white wine vinegar
Pinch of salt and pepper

This is one of those easy recipes for kids that will keep the whole family happy.


Combine all of the marinade ingredients together in a bowl. Stir the chicken into the marinade until its all good and covered, put clingfilm over the top of the bowl to cover, and place in the fridge for one hour.

Thread the chicken and the vegetables on the wooden skewers, alternating chicken and vegetables. Tip: soak wooden skewers in water for 20 minutes to stop them from burning in the oven.Lightly oil a baking tray and place kebabs on tray and cook in a preheated oven at 220°C for approximately 20 minutes.Serve two skewers per person, and some form of potato side dish, such as potato chips

This is a great dish to make with the children. Get little fingers busy and helping you…cut up the vegetables and chicken and place on separate plates, then gather the children around the table and hold a threading competition to see who is the quickest at threading the chicken/vegetables onto the skewer, or who can get the most amount of vegetables/chicken onto their skewer!
