    • Preparation time: 20 minutes, plus soaking skewers
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes, plus soaking skewers

    Makes: 18


    6 chicken thigh fillets (about 550g), trimmed and cut into 2-3cm chunks (36 in total)

    150g cooking chorizo, halved and cut into 2-3cm pieces (18 in total)

    1 tbsp olive oil

    large handful flat leaf parsley, leaves roughly chopped



    200ml mayonnaise

    large pinch saffron

    ½ lemon, juice

    ½ garlic clove, crushed


    1. Soak 18 wooden skewers in just-boiled water for 15 minutes and preheat the grill to high. Mix the aïoli ingredients together in a bowl and season; set aside.

    2. Thread 1 piece of chicken, followed by 1 chunk of chorizo then another piece of chicken onto each skewer. Spread over a large baking tray and season.

    3. Drizzle the oil over the skewers and grill for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden and the chicken’s juices run clear. Arrange on a platter, sprinkle over the parsley and serve the aïoli alongside.
