Give your dinner party a shot of Spanish style with these satay canapes
- STEP 1
Up to a day ahead, cut the chicken breasts into 36 thin strips and put them into a bowl with the soy sauce, chilli sauce, garlic, oil and sugar. Mix together until the chicken is coated, then thread each strip on to a bamboo skewer. Get the skewers lined up on a baking tray and keep covered in the fridge until ready to cook.
- STEP 2
Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5/fan 170C. Put the tray in the hottest part of the oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, warm the satay sauce in a pan, then spoon a little into each of 12 shot glasses or small tumblers.
- STEP 3
When the chicken is done, remove the tray from the oven and squeeze the lime juice over the chicken. Pop 3 skewers in each shot glass and a slice of lime on to each rim. Serve warm or cold – they’re nice either way.
VERY LAZY CHILLIES
You'll find the excellent Very Lazy Chillies from the English Provender Company, at good supermarkets and delis. They're a fiddle-free alternative to fresh chillies, so it's handy to have a jar in the fridge. If you can't get hold of them, just use chilli sauce or chilli paste instead.
