Method
  1. Soak the skewers in water for 10 minutes, so they don’t burn.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 4 and lightly oil a large baking tray.
  3. Mix the chicken with the Chinese five-spice, sesame oil, soy sauce and honey, ensuring even coating.
  4. Thread peppers and chicken alternately onto the skewers and bake for 8–10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Arrange on a serving platter and scatter with spring onion, cucumber and pomegranate.
Chefs tips
  • You could use turkey or pork – or any meaty fish – instead of chicken.
  • You could make this dish up to 24 hours in advance, and leave the chicken to marinade overnight.
