  1. To make the marinade, whisk together the garlic, stout, soy sauce, honey and mustard in a bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat, then cover and put in the fridge until you’re ready to cook. If you’re using wooden skewers, put them in water to soak – this will stop them burning on the barbecue.
  2. Drain the chicken in a sieve set over a pan to catch the marinade. Thread the chicken onto 6 skewers and set aside. Simmer the marinade, stirring, until it has reduced to a quarter of its original quantity. Set aside.
  3. Heat the barbecue while you make the succotash. Blanch the broad beans in a pan of boiling water for 1-2 minutes, then drain and pop them out of their skins.
  4. Melt the spread in a flameproof casserole set over a medium heat and fry the onions for 6-8 minutes until softened. Stir in the thyme and cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the sweetcorn, celery and green beans. Cook for 5 minutes, then add the broad beans and cook for 2-3 minutes until the broad beans are tender. Transfer to a serving bowl. For the dressing, whisk together the honey, mustard, garlic, vinegar and olive oil, and season to taste. Drizzle over the succotash, add the basil and toss to coat.
  5. Barbecue the skewers for 10-12 minutes, turning regularly and brushing with the reduced marinade every few minutes, until charred, sticky and cooked through. Serve with the succotash.
