I managed to get the BBQ out again today. I’m trying to make the most of the sunshine we’ve got here. I didn’t have the best mince beef to make burgers. I opted for Indian style chicken skewers and wasn’t disappointed. These easy to make and can be cooked in less than 20 minutes. Tandoori Chicken Skewers will go down well at any BBQ!

To make these Tandoori Skewers you simply need a few herbs spices and some yoghurt. I will be posting a few more Tandoori dishes soon. These really tastes amazing and are so simple to make.
