Garlic and Herb Chicken Skewers


Garlic And Herb Chicken prep
Ingredients
450g chicken, diced
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 cup of fresh herbs (we used rosemary, thyme, parsley and oregano)
1 tsp garlic, chopped
1 tbsp lemon zest
Salt & pepper, to season
Skewers (if wooden, soak in water for at least 1 hour to avoid burning)

Marinade 
1. Place chicken into a bowl and set aside.
2. Mix all remaining ingredients together and coat chicken, refrigerate while you preheat Uuni, or make it the night before for optimum flavour. At this stage, you can add more flavouring if desired – we opted for an additional 1 tbsp of sweet chilli sauce – just to heat things up a little more!

Method
1. With a drizzle of oil, preheat sizzler pan for 1 minute.
2. Thread the chicken pieces onto a skewer (we ended up with 4 skewers with 4-5 pieces of chicken per skewer)
3. Remove sizzler pan, place skewers on and cook in Uuni for approx 6 minutes or until cooked
4. Serve with Uunified veg and a side of your choice (we chose zucchini fritters – recipe coming soon!)

Chicken, Mushroom & Pesto Pizza

It’s not exactly new information that chicken and mushroom is a match made in heaven. I’m a vegetarian and even I accept this as 100% FACT! But something that everybody doesn’t necessarily know, is that you don’t need to eat a pot noodle to satisfy your chicken and mushroom craving. With a 2 minute cooking time, this pizza will actually cook faster. What’s more, it comes with the added bonus of pesto! Win win.

Recipe
Classic dough
Classic sauce
Chicken fillets, sliced
2 tsp of basil pesto
Mushrooms, sliced
Mozzarella, sliced
Olive oil
Fresh basil (to garnish)

Method
First light up your Uuni.
While the Uuni’s heating up, pour a dash of olive oil into a frying pan and add the chicken pieces. Season and fry until the chicken starts to turn golden brown. You can do this in your Uuni, or step inside and use your kitchen hob.
While the chicken is frying you can flour your pizza peel and spread your dough over the top. Don’t forget about that chicken though!
Remove your chicken from the heat and place it on top of the Uuni while you add your sliced mozzarella, mushrooms, and some small dollops of basil pesto to the pizza base.
Add the chicken to the pizza and slide into the Uuni.
Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste.
