To celebrate the world cup Schwartz have created a delicious Brazilian BBQ inspired Grill Mates. A handy sachet which makes a smoky, citrus flavoured marinade which is perfect for beef, chicken and even king prawns! It is a great way to zest up your summer BBQ and celebrate the carnival feeling that both summer and the world cup will bring to the UK this year.
This is how we enjoyed Schwartz Grill Mates Brazilian BBQ...
Schwartz Brazilian BBQ Smoky and Zesty Chicken Skewers
1 sachet of Schwartz Grill Mates Brazilian BBQ Marinade Mix
900g chicken, diced
50mls olive oil
2tsp white wine vinegar
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 - Make the marinade by combining the sachet contents with both the olive oil and white wine vinegar in a large dish
2 - Add the diced chicken, making sure that it is all thoroughly coated in the marinade, cover and leave for at least 15 minutes. The packet does say that for best results marinade over night, however I put the chicken to marinade in the morning so it had a good 8 hours!
3 - Once the meat has had sufficient time to soak in all of the delicious flavours you can prepare the skewers for the BBQ
4 - To make the skewers add the chicken, red pepper, onion, chicken, green pepper, onion, and repeat until the skewer is full
5 - BBQ the skewers until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and serve!
This marinade is so versatile, easy to use and delicious. The smoked paprika and cumin give this dish a real taste of Brazil!
Perfect for a summers day in the garden, an evening in watching the world cup or a fun family meal.
