- METHOD -

Mix together all of the marinade ingredients. Place the chicken thighs in a large bowl and add the marinade. Toss to ensure everything is thoroughly coated. Allow the chicken to marinate for an hour. Then thread the chicken thighs onto skewers along with chunks of green pepper and red onion. (Cook’s note: if you are using metal skewers, oil the skewers before you thread the chicken on. This will make it much easier to slip the cooked chicken off. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 15 minutes before using to prevent them burning.)

Once you’ve assembled your chicken skewers, paint them with the left over marinade.  Braai the skewers until done. If preferred, place them on a baking sheet in your oven under a hot grill, turning frequently. Give them a final light dusting of our Mediterranean Roasts Rub and serve right away.
