Morroccan Chicken skewers


This is a recipe that originally used beef but as I had a about a kilo of really good quality chicken breast I decided to use it instead. This is easy and cheap to do and I cooked it in my oven! It made 5 delicious skewers! I am planning to try this with beef as well. It t would be best on the grill but as I don´t have one and I live in a flat, I used my trusty little oven set at 250.

Adapted from


  • 1 12-2 lbs chicken breast, less than 1 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  •  1 cup  small onion, grated
  • 2  tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1  teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 12 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 12 teaspoon onion powder


  1. Place the chicken cubes in a medium bowl. Add the parsley and set aside.
  2. Pour the olive oil in a small glass bowl. Add the spices, vinegar & tomato paste, stir until well blended. Grate the onion & add it to the oil mixture.
  3. Stir in half the mixture in with the chicken until it is well coated. Cover with a lid & place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours.
  4. Place the chicken on metal skewers, leaving a little gap between each piece. Brush the other half of the oil mixture on the chicken. Place on a baking pan that has been covered in foil. Grill on each side until the chicken is no longer pink inside, between 10-15 minutes. I left mine in the oven for about 20 minutes.

 Enjoy! Xxxx Natascha
