top tips for making tasty five spice chicken skewers:
- want juicy breasts that won’t shrivel up? Order from our fantastic Muscle Food deals!
- you can also cook these under the grill instead if you’d prefer, set it to medium-high and cook for ten minutes, turning frequently
- yeah, technically you should syn the pineapple if you’re following the plan to the letter, but lets be honest – it’s not a huge amount of pineapple, it’s not getting mashed down or owt, no magical sugars are being created and frankly – life’s too short. We didn’t bother. You can if you like.
- Fry Light is crap because it tastes crap and you get a pissy little stream. Get a mister instead – you’ll never look back!
- metal skewers work fine too – just watch your hands!

- mix together the five spice, garam masala, black pepper and soy sauce in a bowl and add the chicken

- thread the chicken slices onto the skewers followed by the peppers, onion and a big chunk of pineapple
