Ingredients

  • 6 chicken thigh fillets
  • Crushed garlic
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh lime (or lemon) juice
  • Olive oil

  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!
