Honey Mustard Chicken With Kumara Carrot Mash

Total Time

This can be served as a main meal like I served it or as a light meal if you only use 2 skewers per person instead of 4. It is very simple to do and is quick to make apart from the long refrigeration time, but it only takes about 5 Min's to throw it all into a bowl then in the fridge for a few hours so it is not pain staking. It tastes wonderful and I got compliments from all, it goes really well with the mash and you can make as little or as much as you want. I served this for just 2 as a main meal but the same ingredients would serve 4 as a light meal or lunch or if you want to serve for 4 as a main just up the chicken to make more skewers and do more mash.

I sliced up boneless/skinless chicken breasts for this and let marinade for about 6 hours and got 8 skewers and between 3 of us ate 6 (DS has claimed the two left over for his lunch tomorrow (which he putting together now). I cooked them on a flat grill on the stove top and they took 12 minutes to cook to moist perfection. Thank you The Flying Chef for another great recipe, made for Edition 7 - Make My Recipe.
