Quick and easy: Lemon and herb

As always, first things first, we are not chefs, we are braai masters. I don’t use specific measurements but rather just gooi (throw) things together. I like to keep things simple!

If you don’t have all the ingredients (other than the meat) act like the braai master you are and make a plan!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 kg chicken, cut into cubes

  • juice from 2 lemons

  • half a pineapple (cut into cubes)

  • garlic and herb spices

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Method

  • MARINADE
  • Throw the oil, lemon juice and about a teaspoon of spices into a bowl and mix.
  • Now add in the chicken, and mix about for a few seconds
  • Pop this into the fridge and let it stand for 3 hours.
  • METHOD – SKEWER
  • Grab some metal or wood skewers (if you are using wood skewers, make sure you soak them in water to make sure they don’t go up in flames!)
  • Skewer the chicken and pineapple, alternating to how much you want on each skewer
  • This is cooked on a medium heat (you are able to hold your hand over the grid for about 7 seconds) directly over the coals.
  • These should take about 15 minutes or so, and you’ll know when they done when the chicken has turned white inside. I check by grabbing a piece off the end and testing it.

Notes

  • You can carry on basting the chicken with the left over lemon juice marinade from before whilst cooking.
