Turmeric chicken skewers


This dish is turmeric chicken skewers, which are particularly well suited to Australian summers. This is our family’s favourite dish. I have cooked this dish many times and I am always satisfied.


•500g diced chicken thighs

•6 clove garlic (small)or 4 big clove

•1/2 tsp white pepper

•1/2 tsp salt

•1 tsp sugar

•1 tbsp turmeric powder

•2 tbsp oyster sauce

•12 bamboo skewers


1. Using mortar and pesto grind together garlic, white pepper and salt until a paste is formed.

2. Add the paste from 1. into the chicken then add sugar, turmeric and oyster sauce then mix well.

3. Marinate the chicken for at least 1 hr.

4. Thread the chicken onto the skewers like making a “kebab”.

5. The chicken skewers are ready to grill or BBQ over medium heat until slightly charred on the outside and cooked through on the inside.
