INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika (pimenton)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1kg chicken thighs, cut into 3cm pieces
  • 2 limes, halved
  • 1 cup (280g) thick Greek-style yoghurt
  • 2 tbs Sriracha

BLACK BEAN SALSA

  • 400g can black beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups very finely shredded kale
  • 1 bunch coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil

METHOD

1. Combine cayenne, paprika, cumin, garlic and oil in a bowl. Add chicken and turn to coat. Thread chicken onto 8 skewers and chill for at least 1 hour to marinate.
2. Heat a barbecue or chargrill pan over high heat. Cook the skewers, turning, for 4 minutes, then add limes cut-side down. Cook for a further 4 minutes or until limes are charred and chicken is charred and cooked through. Set aside to rest, loosely covered with foil, for 5 minutes.
3. For the salsa, combine all ingredients in a bowl, season and drizzle over the juice of 1 charred lime. Serve chicken with salsa, yoghurt swirled with hot sauce and extra charred lime.
