These Easy Chicken Skewers are one of the quickest family friendly chicken recipes we’ve tried – you can have them ready and on the table in 20 minutes!
The recipe can also be easily adapted to include any vegetables that your children prefer to eat, or that are in season locally.
Whichever vegetables you choose, I would suggest cutting the vegetable and chicken pieces as uniformly as possible to help ensure they cook evenly.
Use a high quality, organic sesame oil if you can. If you choose to use a non-organic or non-pressed variety of sesame oil (it will generally say on the label) halve the amount mentioned as the flavour from a roasted sesame oil is very strong.
If you use wooden skewers they will need to be soaked in water for a minimum of two hours prior to using to prevent them from burning. Using metal skewers assists the food to cook quickly and more evenly, and they can be re-used over and over again.
I prefer to use an iron skillet pan or BBQ grill to make this meal as it is best to add the prepared chicken skewers to a hot pan.
Kaffir lime leaves provide flavour to the chicken during the cooking. They are not a pleasant texture to eat so remove before eating.
