Preparation -- 5 minutes + waiting time

Remove excess fat and muscles from the chicken fillets. Cut the fillets into bite-size pieces. Combine the pieces of chicken in the medium-sized bowl along with the freshly squeezed lemon juice, pepper, salt and tabasco.

You can add more or less tabasco depending on how you like your chicken. Cover with cling film, refrigerate and marinate for at least an hour.

Grilling the spicy marinated chicken skewers -- 10 minutes

Get your wooden skewers ready and lace the chicken pieces onto the skewers. Heat your grill pan, drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the chicken skewers.

Grill them on both sides for about 3 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken pieces. We made small skewers to share with friends with a bunch of other tapas, but you can also make large ones and enjoy them as a main meal.

Enjoy them with garlic sauce, aioli or even satay sauce!
