Herb Crusted Chicken Skewers with Shaved Cucumber Salad

Course Main Dish, Salad
Cuisine Light & Fresh


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 3 Houweling’s mini cucumbers
  • ½ tbsp dried oregano
  • ½ tbsp dried thyme
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil


  • If you are using wooden skewers, place them in water for 5 minutes so they don’t burn in the oven. Next, preheat your oven to 500°F and place a rack in the top 1/3 of the oven.
  • Meanwhile, dice the chicken breast into small cubes and load them onto the skewers. Season the chicken liberally with the thyme, oregano, salt and pepper, so they are coated with the herbs. Drizzle them with olive oil and bake them in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • To make the salad, shave the cucumber into thin slices using a vegetable peeler. Season the salad with the zest and juice of 1 lemon, the chili flakes and some salt, pepper and olive oil. Let the salad sit for about 5 minutes to absorb all those flavours, before serving it with the chicken skewers, hot out of the oven.
