Cooking/Preparation Time - 45mins
Feeds 8/10

Pesto Ingredients -

1 x 50g Pack of fresh basil
1 x 70g Fresh parmesan - Finely grated
2 x Garlic cloves - Crushed
Sprinkle of rock salt
30g Pine Nuts

Pesto Instructions - 

Muddle everything together in a pestle and mortar until you have a paste before adding half a mug of extra virgin olive oil. It's as simple as that.

Chicken Skewers Ingredients - 

500g of Free Range Chicken - Cut into strips 1 inch x 2 inch
2 x Handfuls of fresh bread crumbs - Roughly tear stale bread into small crumbs/pieces
1 x Jar of sweet pickled gherkins - Finely sliced
2 x Courgettes - Sliced into ribbons
Plenty of cocktail sticks

Chicken Skewers Instructions - 

Start by muddling all the pesto ingredients then use to cover the strips of chicken before adding the bread crumbs and cooking at 190 degrees Celsius for 25/30 mins (save two spoonfuls to make the pesto creme fraiche later).
Use a vegetable peeler to slice the courgette into ribbons. Slice the gherkins into bite size portions.
Once the pesto chicken is cooked, stir thoroughly so to re-coat the chicken with the pesto. Let it cool then combine the chicken with a courgette ribbon and gherkin on a cocktail stick. Repeat until all chicken is used. 
For the Pesto Creme Fraiche just combine two spoonfuls of pesto with half a pot of creme fraiche.
Garnish with torn fresh basil & black pepper.
