Barbecue chicken skewers: light and tasty

Chicken skewers: one eye on the shape and another on the taste

The mixed grill is to the Easter holidays like water to the sea: in short, grilled meat is the real spring must have! On the one hand we find the need to respect tradition and eat good food - preferably grilled - and on the other the desire to eat something tasty while thinking - even a little - about the figure. But between salami, Florentine steaks, Boston Butt and pork skewers, how do we satisfy even the most demanding diners? Simple! You need to equip yourself with excellent chicken meat online, find the right RUB, an accompanying sauce and you're done.

Here Carne Genuina chooses to offer in its online butcher's shop a new product that is truly perfect for all palates: "light" (if we don't add some sauce) and super tasty chicken skewers to be cooked on the barbecue together with grilled vegetables. Let's discover the tasty recipe.

Barbecue chicken skewers: lightness and taste

Chicken skewers are a lighter version than pork skewers but they have nothing to envy in terms of taste! In addition to having fun putting them together, perhaps adding some fruit or some different vegetables, our novelty in the online butcher's shop is the easy to go solution that is immediately ready to cook and enjoy. Still on the theme of "easy grilling", we have added something new that is also perfect for cooking and enjoying a light picnic with an eye on the environment: the portable and biodegradable Casus Grill. In short, the perfect combo to enjoy chicken skewers wherever you are. The recipe below is great for both preparations; if you decide to use the portable grill, just remember to marinate the meat the night before. Here's how to prepare them with an accompanying barbecue sauce to make them even more delicious.

The recipe for grilled chicken skewers

BBQ chicken skewers ingredients

  • 1 kg of chicken skewers (4 portions)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • chicken Rub 39 to taste
  • salt to taste
  • black or white pepper to taste
  • lemon thyme or herbs to taste
  • vegetables of your choice to grill as an accompaniment

Ingredients for DIY BBQ Sauce

  • 200 ml of ketchup
  • 70 ml of pineapple juice
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper

Chicken skewers cooking procedure

We have two options for marinating: the light version or the BBQ master version. For the light version, start by soaking the skewers with extra virgin olive oil, lemon, salt, pepper and lemon juice and leave to marinate for at least half an hour.

For the BBQ master version, we recommend marinating and sprinkling the skewers with the tasty Chicken Rub 39 composed of: salt, cane sugar, black pepper, sweet paprika, coriander, turmeric, fennel, cumin, garlic, fenugreek, laurel, cloves and chilli pepper. Let the skewers rest for at least an hour and then move on to cooking. The result will be amazing.

To prepare the barbecue sauce, simply mix all the ingredients in a bowl: ketchup, pineapple juice, lemon juice, soy sauce, salt, pepper and brown sugar. The super fast version is ready!

Now that everything is ready, place the chicken skewers on the grill and if you want, brush with a little bit of barbecue sauce during cooking. Continue turning them until they are well cooked: the cooking time for BBQ chicken skewers varies from approx. 15 to 20 minutes. In the meantime, if you have space, you can toast some accompanying vegetables a little. Now the skewers are ready to enjoy without worrying - too much - about the shape.
