(Plus 4 hours marinating)


  • 500 chicken breast, cut into slices
  • ready-made satay sauce, to serve


  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 150ml vegetable oil
  • 100ml soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar


  • raw onion, chopped
  • cucumber, chunks, roughly chopped

Cooking Instructions

  1. Put the chicken slices in a bowl and add all the ingredients for the marinade. Stir well and make sure that all the chicken pieces are covered in the marinade. Leave for at least 4 hours, but preferable overnight. Give the chicken an occasional stir.
  2. Carefully spear the chicken pieces onto the skewers, leaving some space at either end. Put them under a hot grill for about 2 minutes, turning once. As you cannot see if the chicken is cooked through, test one piece- you can always grill it for a little longer if you need to.
  3. You will have to cook the skewers in batches, so keep the cooked chicken warm while waiting for them all to be done.
  4. Put on top of raw onion and cucumber and dip into the satay sauce.
