Yields4 ServingsPrep Time15 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time30 mins

These Spanish Chicken Skewers with Fino Sherry are packed with amazing flavour. It's quite incredible how much gets into the meat and how tender it becomes after marinating. It deserves a very special "Olé!"

 700 g Chicken thighs or breast (cut into large chunks)
 3 shallots (chopped)
 2 garlic cloves
 2 tsp Spanish smoked paprika
 5 sprigs fresh parsley (stalks and all)
 ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
 1 cup Spanish dry Fino sherry
 1 Lemon (juice of)
 2 tsp salt
 Freshly ground black pepper

Put together the shallots, garlic, paprika, parsley, olive oil, sherry, lemon, salt & pepper into a food processor and blend into a smooth paste.


Place chicken into a plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Leave for 4 hours or overnight (for best results)


After marinating, thread 4-5 pieces of chicken on skewers (if you're using wooden skewers, soak them in water the same time as you marinate your chicken. This will help when cooking, to stop them being completely destroyed by the BBQ immediately).


Heat a BBQ til hot then grill the chicken for about 10 minutes, moving frequently till lightly charred on all sides.


Rest the chicken for 2-3 minutes before serving.

Serve as a main course, or break up into single pieces and skewer with a toothpick and serve as tapas.
