Method

  1. Mix the pineapple juice, tomato ketchup, vinegar and some seasoning together. Reserve half, then add the rest to a bowl with the chicken and half the red chilli. Marinate for 5 mins.
  2. Thread the chicken, pepper and half the pineapple onto 8 skewers.
  3. Heat your grill, or fire up a barbecue. Brush any excess marinade over the skewers, then grill or barbecue, turning regularly, for about 8 mins or until the chicken is starting to char at the edges and is cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the noodles following pack instructions, drain, then stir through the remaining pineapple, chilli and spring onions. Serve with the remaining sauce on the side or drizzled on top of the skewers.

Fiddly to make but worth it for the tasty result. Grilled rather than barbequed.
