1 clove garlic, crushed
1 lemon, zested
1 vine-ripened tomato, seeded, finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped coriander

Step 1 To marinate chicken, place garlic, ginger, chillies, cumin, all paprika, lemon zest and juice, oil and chicken in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and toss well to combine.

Step 2 Thread chicken evenly onto skewers and place on a large oven tray. Cover and stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to marinate.
