  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 lime, juice and zest
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 large ripe mango, diced flesh
  • dried chilli flakes
  • extra lime, optional garnish


  1. In a bowl, combine the lime juice and zest with the ginger and spices.

  2. Dice your chicken and throw it into a freezer bag.

  3. Pour over your marinade and shake it up, making sure to coat the chicken well.

  4. Leave to marinate for a couple of hours at least, ideally overnight.

  5. When you're ready to cook, soak your skewers in cold water (this prevents them burning up during cooking!)

  6. Dice / decant ready-diced mango (you clever thing)

  7. Thread chicken and mango alternately onto your skewers, leaving a little wriggle room between the fruit and meat. You want them to be close, but not tightly packed.

  8. Sprinkle over some dried chilli flakes and a little more lime juice.

  9. Barbecue / grill for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the meat is white all the way through. (Note: turn these carefully, you want to keep the mango intact).

  10. Serve with salad and / or pittas and an extra wedge of lime.
