This is a really easy dinner to throw in the oven, and the chicken can be swapped for a meat-free alternative such as halloumi or a vegetarian chicken substitute. The vegetables for the sauce are cooked in the same pan as the skewers and can either be blended to make a sauce or served as a garnish. The most important part of this recipe is to remember to soak the skewer sticks in water before you put them in the oven !
