  • 4 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
For the marinade
  • 50g/2oz kaffir lime leaves*, fresh or dried, chopped
  • 50g/2oz fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 limes, juice and zest, grated
  • 2 tbsp Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ½ red chilli, de-seeded, grated
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • Bamboo or metal skewers
For the salsa
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tin sweetcorn, drained
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 limes, juice only
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped


Mix together all the marinade ingredients then add the chicken, tossing well to ensure each piece is well coated. Thread the chicken onto the skewers then grill or bbq for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, combine all ingredients for the salsa then set aside until required. Serve the kebabs on a large platter with the salsa on the side.

*Although lime leaves are becoming more widely available, if you can't get hold of any, substitute with lemongrass.

Top Tip

If using bamboo skewers, remember to soak them in water first to prevent them from burning.
