Serve with potato wedges or baked potatoes, carrots and cucumber sticks.
Remember to defrost your meat. Defrost your meat in the fridge and use within 24 hours, or in a microwave on ‘defrost’ directly before use.This recipe works perfectly with frozen meat. Check what you have in your freezer and defrost meat thoroughly before cooking. If using defrosted cooked meat, you can only reheat this meat once so only cook what you can eat.
Soak bamboo skewers in a shallow tray for about 15 minutes.
Top tip: These could be made without the bamboo skewer, but threading the chicken onto skewers makes them easier to handle when cooking. It’s a good idea to soak the bamboo skewers for 15 minutes in water before grilling, to prevent burning.
Put the bread in a food processor and process to crumbs. Transfer to a bowl, stir in the cheese and season.
Mix the mayonnaise, garlic, herbs, and salt and pepper seasoning in a bowl. Put the chicken into a bowl and use 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise mixture to coat the chicken pieces. Save the remainder of the sauce for dipping.
Weave the chicken onto bamboo sticks and toss into the bread crumb and cheese mixture. Place onto a non-stick baking sheet and drizzle with oil.
Cook under a pre-heated hot grill for 4-5 minutes on each side.
Serve with the remaining mayonnaise and lemon wedges.
