It’s barbecue weather at last and this low fat recipe is quick and tasty.  It’s also good as a starter – add more chilli powder if you like it spicier!

450g boneless chicken breasts, cut into cubes

Mix together all of the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl, add the chicken cubes, cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least two hours, preferably overnight. Pre-heat a grill, griddle or the barbecue to a medium heat.

Skewer the chicken pieces and cook for approximately 15 minutes, turning several times, until cooked through.
