Add all
  • buttermilk

  • 1 tsp.
    (5 mL)

    dried rosemary

  • 1 Tbsp.
    (15 mL)

    wholegrain mustard

  • 1/4 tsp.
    (1 mL)

    bird peppers washed, grains removed, finely chopped

  • 1x600 g

    boneless chicken breasts diced into 2x2 cm cubes

  • 2

    large red grapefruit peeled, supremes removed

  • Greek yogourt 2% M.F.

  • 1 tsp.
    (5 mL)

    fresh rosemary finely chopped

  • 1/2 tsp.
    (3 mL)

    clover honey

  • 8

    wooden skewers previously soaked in water for 1 hour before cooking


Marinade - In an airtight container, combine buttermilk with the rest of the marinade’s ingredients. Thoroughly mix.

Add cubed chicken to the marinade, and refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours and a maximum of 24 hours.

Prepare the grapefruit supremes, cutting each one into 2 equal pieces.

To make the brochettes, divide the chicken and grapefruit into 8 portions.

Start with a chicken cube, and then alternate between pieces of grapefruit supreme and chicken cubes, until the 8 brochettes are ready.

Preheat BBQ on high.

In the meantime, prepare the rosemary sauce.

In a bowl, combine Greek yogourt with the rest of the sauce’s ingredients.

Season with salt and stir. Refrigerate until ready to use.

When the BBQ is hot, oil the grill very lightly to keep brochettes from sticking.

Turn off heat on one side of the BBQ to create indirect heat.

Place chicken brochettes on the “off” section of the BBQ, close the cover, and cook on one side for 5 minutes (at about 375°F).

Turn brochettes over, close the lid and continue cooking for 8 minutes.

Before removing from the BBQ, make sure the chicken is thoroughly cooked. (It should still be very tender.)

Remove from BBQ and serve immediately with rosemary sauce.
