Method

 
Mix together all the ingredients for the basting sauce.

In the morning, cut the chicken in big chunks and place in a plastic bag together with all the marinade ingredients.

Make a knot in the bag and keep in the fridge for as long as you can.

The make the kebabs, simply alternate pieces of chicken and pineapple onto kebab sticks and you are ready.

Place on medium coals, in the oven or on a griddle pan. Allow to cook for about 5 minutes, before you start basting.

Turn the kebabs, keep on basting until they are cooked, golden brown and sticky.

I served the Kebabs on some sticky rice and a salad made with gooseberries, apple, spring onions and a light vinaigrette.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
