YUM YUM. These are lovely. I did them on a griddle and squeezed juice of another lime over it. When I presented them I poured some more lime juice over it using a total of 3 limes. Very tasty :). thanks for putting the recipie on...!

This was quick and easy - I used fromage frais as 0% Greek yoghurt isn't available where I live and the coating was lovely and moist.

YUM! found it hard to get hold of skewers. It needs mango chutney.

Made these for a quick & easy BBQ tea and they were lovely. Good flavour and the yogurt stopped the chicken drying out. Would make again if I didn't have the time to do a proper marinade.
