Ingredients

  • Juice of 1 lime

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Start by slicing the lemongrass skewer into halves.
  2. Blend all seasoning ingredients in a food processor and then combine with the chicken in a large bowl. Let sit for 20 minutes in the fridge.
  3. Using wet hands, or gloves, divide the chicken into 8 portions and shape around the end of a lemongrass skewer. Lightly brush the chicken with oil and cook in batches on a hot grill for 8 minutes turning often.
