  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 small skinless boneless chicken breast fillet, cut into cubes
  • 20 button mushroom
  • 20 cherry tomato
  • 2 large red pepper, seeded and each cut into 10


  1. Grind the garlic, ginger, orange zest and spring onions to a paste in a food processor. Add the honey, orange juice, soy sauce and oil, then blend again. Pour the mixture over the cubed chicken and leave to marinate for at least 1 hr, but preferably overnight. Toss in the mushrooms for the last half an hour so they take on some of the flavour, too.

  2. Thread the chicken, tomatoes, mushrooms and peppers onto 20 wooden skewers, then cook on a griddle pan for 7-8 mins each side or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and golden brown. Turn the kebabs frequently and baste with the marinade from time to time until evenly cooked. Arrange on a platter, scatter with chopped spring onion and eat with your fingers.

My boyfriend and I loved these! Added an extra garlic clove, replaced tomatoes with a green pepper and the orange with half a lemon. Also froze some of the chicken breast chunks with the marinade for later and it marinaded wonderfully while defrosting and tasted even better!

Have made these a couple of times now but with pork not chicken, but added a chilli for kick. Had some marinade left the other day and put that on prawns for the BBQ - the best. Only giving it a 4 though cos the Chilli is a must!

Yummy. I made these as a starter for a dinner party it went down well.

Delicious! Everyone was very impressed. Admittedly I was nervous when I first saw the marinade as it looked quite unappetising but they tasted great! Will make again.

I think is was really strange! Had much better kebabs, including the chicken tikka low fat ones here on good food. Just tasted of ginger, would not do again.

I had no ginger so used cayenne pepper and a pinch of chilli flakes and I also substituted the orange for lemon. I added some chopped parsley when they were cooked and served with pitta bread. Really delicious and easy.

I have written a far more extensive note which would not be accepted at the time by the server for whatever reason so I am limiting this comment to one of complete satisfaction with the end result as well as pointing out that the quantities are also quite generous particularly when an accompanying dish is also served (basmati rice with saffron in my case).

i used the recipe for the spicy chicken for full breasts as part as a dinner party. prepared the night before and then i cooked the chicken in a saucepan with a little bit of water and the sauce and then fried to make it really cripsy and sticky

Oops forgot the stars!

Very easy and tasty. I used rind of a lemon and juice of half a lemon instead of the orange, and they were delicious. Will definitely make them again with lemon.

I thought the marinade tasted a bit odd, I've certainly had much nicer!

Great recipe, different, went down a storm with the family, all seven of us.

I had no orange so added lime rind and juice instead plus some chopped coriander, they were great, fresh and light for our bbq.

I made this for a family buffet and everyone loved it - I just think there probably wasn't enough as people wanted seconds!

A simple dish that is delicious as well - I didn't include the spring onions but I put in some other herbs instead, it worked just fine.
