Threading onto the skewers and alternating the chicken, bacon and sweet potato

  • Place the sweet potato cubes into a pan of water and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and cook for 4 or 5 mins

  • Cool down the sweet potato with cold water.

  • Meanwhile combine the olive oil, honey, cinnamon, allspice, cayenne and red pepper flakes in a bowl and season to taste.

  • Thread the sweet potatoes, Primal Bacon and Chicken onto the skewers, alternating the ingredients.

  • Grill, griddle or barbecue the kebabs for 10 - 12 minutes, turning frequently until the chicken is cooked through

Remember to brush the kebabs with the sauce and grill griddle or barbecue for a further minute on each side to complete the flavour :)

If using wooden skewers, leave to soak in a bowl of water for approx 30 mins. before threading on the meat and potatoes.

This will make cooking easier on the barbecue or griddle as the sticks will not burn too ;)
