Brocheta de pollo al romero (Rosemary chicken skewers)

Brocheta de pollo al romero (Rosemary chicken skewers)

As the folks at La Laguna Ahora explain, "This recipe is ideal for an informal meal, we saw it in Oliver’s Twist and we could not resist trying it, with a really delicious result. The rosemary chicken skewers are very tasty, prepare a good portion because you are going to love them." We assume they're referring to Oliver’s With A Twist in Los Cristianos, so make this yourself while you wait to get a booking. 

3 filleted chicken breasts
12 slices of bacon
1 lemon
1 head of garlic
1 sprig of rosemary
black pepper
olive oil and salt.

Preparation: Start by preparing the marinade, grate the lemon rind without reaching pith, de-leaf the rosemary, peel the garlic cloves and put all the ingredients in a large mortar, add black pepper and salt and crush well. Add olive oil and mix well.

Cut the breast fillets into strips about two fingers wide and place them in the prepared dressing, leave to marinate for a minimum of half an hour.

Cut the bacon slices in half lengthwise. Prepare two or three skewers per person, depending on how much you load them. To do this, take a strip of chicken together with one of bacon, skewer it at one end, fold the chicken and bacon and skewer again. 

Repeat the operation until all the ingredients are used, then, on a grill or griddle, pour a little oil from the marinade and grill them by turning them so that they brown evenly.
