50 ml chopped coriander

2 large cloves garlic, crushed

Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, coriander and garlic in a glass bowl.


Season the chicken cubes with salt and freshly ground black pepper and add to the marinade. Mix well and leave to marinate overnight.

Thread the chicken cubes onto kebab skewers that have been soaked in water, alternating with the pepper cubes and mealie pieces.

Serve the kebabs with toasted sandwiches and a green salad.
