Mexican Kebabs

You can cook these spicy kebabs on the barbecue or grill – just turn them often to prevent burning.

Serves:  4;  Cals per portion:  250

Ingredients:  4 chicken breast fillets, skinned; 30ml (2 tbsp) olive oil; juice of 1 lime; 5ml (1 tsp) each ground black pepper, chilli powder and paprika; 10ml (2 tsp) dried oregano; 1 large onion, cut into pieces; 1/2 green pepper, cut into pieces; 8 small tomatoes; lime wedges and oregano to garnish.

  • Cut the chicken fillets into even-sized pieces and place in a sealable non-metallic container.  Mix together the oil, lime juice, spices and oregano, then pour over the chicken.  Leave to marinate for 2 hours at room temperature.
  • Thread the chicken on to 4 metal skewers with the onion and pepper pieces, placing a tomato at each end of a skewer.
  • Cook under a medium grill for 20-25 mins.  Turn occasionally until chicken is cooked through and slightly charred.
  • Garnish with lime wedges and fresh oregano, then serve with warmed tortilla pancakes, soured cream and salad.
