  1. Marinate the chicken for as long as possible, even overnight.
  2. Thread the thighs onto metal skewers.
  3. Heat a grill plate on the gas hob and when hot, brush each skewer with oil and place on the grill. Allow to colour up before turning - a bit of charring will encourage the bbq flavours!
  4. Once browned all over, turn the heat down and cook slowly until cooked through. Serve on platters with sauces and salads as follows
