Chicken & Chorizo Kebabs

There is something really special about grilled chorizo, that has a really rich, deep and smokey flavour that goes so well with kebabs. This simple combination is my favourite way to serve chicken kebabs.



600g    Chicken breasts, approx. 3-4 large breasts, skinned

4          Chorizo uncooked sausages, total approx. 200-300g weight

2          Green peppers or 1 green and 1 red pepper

1 tsp     Paprika

1 tbs     Lemon juice

3 tbs     Olive oil

Salt and black pepper

4-6      Skewers


Preparation and cooking

Dice up the chicken into large chunks approx. 5-6cm square, and place in a large bowl with the paprika, lemon juice, olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Leave for approx. 1 hour.

Slice up the green pepper into 5-6cm chunks. If the chorizo sausage has skin on it, then remove it, before slicing each sausage up into 4-5 large chunks. You want chorizo slices that are approx. 2cm thick.

Preheat the BBQ or grill to a high heat. Make the kebabs by combining green pepper, chicken chunks, and chorizo slices onto each skewer, using 3-4 pieces of each on every skewer.

Grill on the BBQ for 10-15 minutes, or as necessary, to ensure that the chicken is well cooked. Turn the kebabs regularly, and serve immediately when done.
