  • 1 Chicken breast per person cut into strips and flattened between clingfilm

  • Cut each chicken breast into long thin strips and flatten slightly between layers of clingfilm
  • Sprinkle the chicken strips with salt to taste
  • Mix the tomato puree and minced garlic together
  • Spread each chicken strip with a little tomato/garlic mixture
  • Top each chicken strip with a slice of bacon. See Note 1
    Slices of bacon layered on chicken fillets.
  • Roll up each chicken strip into a pinwheel and place it on a bamboo skewer. I make 4 per skewer. See Note 2
    Chicken and bacon skewers - ready to cook
  • Grill on the barbeque for approximately 10 minutes, turning often. See Note 3.


  1. The bacon should just cover the chicken strip.  If the rashers are too big, cut to size with kitchen scissors.
  2. If you are using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for a couple of hours before using so that they do not burn on the barbeque.  
  3. You can also cook these in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes at 200C/400F, depending on the size of your pinwheels.
