Qwik and easy to prepare this meal you can easily utilise left overs for work lunches or a meal on the run.

From: Parker, Sally (Apr 2015) 5pm Panic in: Healthy Food Guide

Serves 4

  • 8 wooden skewers
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 lemon, grated zest and juice
  • 600g chicken breast fillets, cut into 2cm chunks
  • 1 medium-sized red capsicum, cut into 2cm chunks
  • 4 corn cobs
  • 400g can chickpeas in spring water, drained, rinsed
  • ½ cup low-fat plain yoghurt
  • 2 large bunches spinach, trimmed, roughly chopped
  1. Soak wooden skewers in cold water for 5 minutes. Mix oil, oregano and lemon zest in a large shallow dish. Add chicken to dish and toss to coat. Thread chicken chunks and capsicum alternatively onto soaked skewers.
  2. Heat a barbecue hotplate to high or spray a large grill pan with oil and set over a high heat. Cook chicken skewers and corn cobs, turning, for 5-6 minutes or until chicken is golden and just cooked through and corn cobs are cooked and slightly charred. Cut each corn cob into 4 pieces. Cover chicken skewers and corn to keep warm and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, blend chickpeas, yoghurt, lemon juice in a food processor until mixture forms a smooth hummus yoghurt.
  4. Steam chopped spinach for 1-2 minutes or until just wilted.
  5. Serve reserved grilled chicken skewers and charred corn with hummus yoghurt and steamed spinach.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
