We all love talking about weather, don’t we? Or better said, moaning. But summer is here and there no more complaining whatsoever. Time for some garden parties to celebrate…well, no reason needed to host a party. Barbecue’s up, drinks are as cold as ice, friends and families are around. Let’s get the party started!

No party? Well, these BBQ chicken skewers can also make a great Sunday treat. If the weather is not that great or the BBQ season is over, you can cook these skewers on the grill pan, that’s absolutely fine. Yes, they might not have the nice smokey flavour, but still, let’s say that is the next best thing.

l love the smokey flavour of bbq meat or vegetables, the cooking method can make such a difference to the texture and taste. The meat is chewy and tender at the same time, and the veggies are crunchy. I opted for onion, cherry tomatoes, aubergine and pickled red bell pepper, and that was an excellent choice, along with the smoked ham.

You can use only chicken, but l find that the smoked ham, which had a tiny little amount of fat, adds moisture and flavour. Barbecue at its best! Alternatively, how about some chicken satay skewers with crunchy peanut butter sauce? It’s a difference flavour, but also fantastically tasty and easy to put together.

You can serve these BBQ skewers with any sauce you like, from ketchup to spicy tomato sauce, BBQ sauce, garlic sauce, whatever takes your fancy. A nice cucumber tomato feta salad on the side, and you’ve got a nice meal to please a crowd. Who said you can’t have fun cooking?
