Eschalots (not to be confused with shallots) are small brown bulbs with papery skin. Shallots are long green shoots with a white base at the roots.

400 g, peeled, cut into 3cm pieces

skinless chicken breast

500 g, cut into 3cm pieces

eschalot(s)

8 whole, trimmed, peeled, halved

maple syrup

¼ cup(s), (60ml)

oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Cook sweet potato in a medium saucepan of boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain. Cool.
  2. Thread sweet potato, chicken and eschalots onto 8 wooden skewers. Place skewers on a tray and brush with maple syrup.
  3. Lightly spray chargrill or barbecue with oil and over medium heat. Cook skewers for 3–4 minutes each side or until chicken is cooked through. Serve.
