Ingredients

For the skewers

For the olive oil flatbreads

Method

  • STEP 1

    Whisk the olive oil, vinegar, thyme, paprika, garlic and 2 tbsp honey with plenty of black pepper. Pour ¾ of the marinade over the chicken and chorizo, reserving the rest to glaze the skewers later. Marinate for at least 2 hrs or overnight. Whisk the leftover 1 tbsp honey into the reserved marinade.

  • STEP 2

    To make the flatbreads, mix the flour, olive oil, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Add 700ml water and knead to a rough dough. Tip onto a floured work surface and knead for 10 mins until smooth and elastic. Transfer to an oiled bowl and cover. Leave to double in size, about 1 hr.

  • STEP 3

    Knock the dough back and divide into 16 small balls about 140g each. Roll each out on a floured work surface until a few millimetres thick and about 20cm wide. Heat a dry frying pan on a medium high heat and cook the dough for 3-4 mins until golden underneath and large bubbles start forming. Flip and cook for 1-2 mins more until lightly golden. You can keep the flatbreads warm in a low oven or on the barbecue, wrapped in foil.

  • STEP 4

    Thread the chicken, chorizo and peppers onto eight large or 16 small metal skewers. Season with salt. Light a barbecue, let the flames die down and the coals turn ashy white, or heat the grill to medium high. Grill the skewers for 8-10 mins, turning every few mins until the chicken is cooked through. Use the remaining marinade to glaze the meat when turning.

  • STEP 5

    With a fork, slide the meat and peppers off the skewers on to the flatbreads. Serve sides separately for guests to assemble their own kebabs.

RECIPE TIPS
PREP AHEAD

Prove the bread overnight in the fridge to get ahead. This will slow down the first proving stage and will mean the bread will be ready for knocking back the next morning.

TOOL UP

Metal skewers are better for barbecuing meat than wooden as they don’t burn, and they conduct heat, so that the meat cooks from the inside as well as outside.
