Method

  1. To make the marinade for the skewers, mix together the tomato puree, honey, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the chicken, coat thoroughly and set aside to marinate in the fridge for up to an hour.
  2. Preheat the grill to high. Thread the chicken, cherry tomatoes and courgette onto the skewers, alternating the ingredients and spoon any of the remaining marinade over the vegetables. Place in a deep baking tray and grill, turning frequently, for 15 minutes, or until cooked.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the vinaigrette, mix together the oil, vinegar and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. To serve, simply toss the lettuce with the dressing and serve with the chicken skewers.

Cook's tips

If using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water before use to stop them from burning. Remember to always keep an eye on them while grilling. If you do not have skewers, these kebabs can be made loose in a deep baking tray.
