Method

  1. If using wooden or bamboo skewers soak eight in cold water for about half an hour. Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 10-12 minutes, until just tender, drain and leave to cool. Mix the herbs, oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a large bowl and add the chicken and potatoes. Mix well until everything is glistening. Cut the onion into 6 wedges, then separate the layers on each wedge. Add the onion and the pepper to the marinade and mix thoroughly.
  2. To make the relish, halve and seed the tomatoes, then chop the flesh finely. Mix the tomatoes, chillies, garlic, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and spoon into a small dish.
  3. Thread the chicken, potatoes, peppers and onion onto 8 skewers, finishing each with a lemon wedge. Barbecue directly over a medium high heat for 5-6 minutes on each side, until the chicken is cooked. Serve piled on a serving platter with the tomato relish.

Very bland even though I put the chicken and potatoes in the marinade for 12 hours. Disappointed with outcome, I would only serve them as part of a large bbq meal but not on their own

Did these last night, left the potato out and replaced with orange segments - yeah i know it sounds bizarre but it was lovely. Had them with some couscous with some more red pepper and onion added, definately making this again!

Did this as a starter for a dinner party. Guests were impressed and although there's a lot of prep work involved, the taste certainly makes up for it. Will make them again.
