Barbecued chicken skewers with papaya


2 chicken breasts
1 papaya (ripe, but not too ripe)
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. ketjap (Indonesian-style soy sauce)
2 tbsp. sweet chili sauce
Salt and pepper

Wonderfully exotic from the barbecue! The papaya makes these skewers freshly sweet, and the ketjap gives them an Asian touch.


  • 1
    Mix the olive oil, ketjap, chili sauce, pepper, and salt in a bowl to make a marinade. Cut the chicken into (medium-sized) cubes, add to marinade, cover, and allow to rest for 1 to 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  • 2
    Cut the papaya into large cubes. Alternate the chicken and papaya on each skewer. Fill as many skewers as you have ingredients for.
  • 3
    Grill the skewers on the barbecue and then enjoy.

    These can also be made indoors using a grill pan if the weather isn’t cooperating.

    TIP: Do you have some papaya left over? Add it to some mango and other fabulous fruits to create a delicious fruit salad to serve at your barbecue.
