  • 4
    chicken breasts or 8 chicken thighs - cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1
    red pepper - deseeded and cut into 2cm squares
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1
    olive oil
  • 8-10
    bamboo skewers - soaked in water for 15-20 minutes
  • 1
    clove garlic - finely chopped
  • 1-2
    grated fresh ginger
  • 1-2
    red chillis - de-seeded and chopped
  • 1-2
    sesame oil
  • 3
    soy sauce
  • 90
    sweet chilli sauce
  • 2
    lime juice (juice of 2 limes)
  • 2
    smooth peanut butter
  • 2
    roughly chopped fresh coriander or basil - for serving
  • ¼
    coconut milk - to loosen the mixture


Spear the chicken and red pepper pieces onto the skewers, with 2 pieces of chicken in between each piece of red pepper. Season with salt and pepper and brush with the olive oil.

Mix together the ingredients for the sauce, check for seasoning and adjust to your taste if necessary, and pour half over the chicken skewers, tossing gently to coat.

Just before serving, heat your bbq or braai grill, or a griddle pan on these stove, and then cook the chicken skewers, turning from time to time, for about 10 minutes, or until cooked through and lightly charred.

Remove from the heat and serve with the remaining sauce and a scattering of fresh basil or coriander leaves and a few extra lime wedges.
