Chicken Tikka Skewers

Food on a stick, what child doesn’t find it a novelty!

(For small children please watch them with wooden skewers you can cut off the ends to make them safer)

You can play with the spices on these skewers to suit your children’s taste but I kept them quite mild in this trial batch so up the spices if you like them hotter.

You will need:

1/2 cup of coconut cream (use Organic if possible and look out for BPA free cans)
1 tablespoon of finely grated ginger
3 tsp garam masalla
1/4 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground tumeric
1/4 – 1/2 tsp ground chillies (OPTIONAL)
salt and pepper
1 kg diced free range/organic chicken breast cut into 2 cm cubes
Extra virgin olive oil to pan fry/BBQ

Combine coconut cream and spices in a large bowl season with salt & pepper. Add in the diced chicken and stir until evenly coated, Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours for flavours to develop.

Thread the chicken onto pre soaked wooden skewers (soaking prevents them from burning whilst cooking) and cook on a hot grill/BBQ or in a pan. Cook till golden brown and cooked through.

Serve with your favourite salad, roast veggies etc

If you are not dairy intolerant/allergic you can use a full fat Greek yoghurt in place of the coconut cream.
