  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 cm fresh ginger root grated
  • 1 tsp cornflour

  2. Arrange the chicken pieces on a few skewers.

  3. Place the chicken on the grill and cook on both sides for about 3-4 minutes, until cooked through.

  5. In a small bowl, combine the cornflour with 2 tablespoons of the stock, mix well, then add to the pan.
