Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp hot-smoked paprika
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 skinless chicken thigh fillets, cut into 3cm chunks
  • a large handful mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1-2 red chillies, sliced
  • cooked basmati rice

GRILLED PINEAPPLE

  • 2 tbsp soft light brown sugar
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 ripe pineapple, peeled and cut into thick round slices

Method

  • STEP 1

    Light the barbecue. Combine the paprika, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil with some salt. Mix to a paste and combine with the diced chicken, mixing well. Set aside to marinate for 1 hour.

  • STEP 2

    Combine the sugar and lime juice in a large bowl. Add the pineapple slices and mix well, making sure every slice is coated.

  • STEP 3

    Barbecue the pineapple slices until lightly charred on both sides. Once cool enough to handle, dice the flesh, discarding the tough cores.

  • STEP 4

    Put the chicken meat onto six skewers and cook over direct heat for 20-25 minutes, turning regularly, or until cooked through and lightly charred at the edges.

  • STEP 5

    Top the pineapple with the mint, sesame seeds and red chillies. Serve with the chicken and rice.
