Grilled chicken fillets with olives

Serves 4 as a starter or snack

You can buy chicken under-fillets easily from supermarkets and butchers and they make great little snacks skewered on to sticks with an olive or two. You could also serve this as a starter with some griddled scallions or young leeks.

8 chicken under-fillets or 8 long strips from a couple of small chicken breasts

16 large green or black olives, stoned

A little vegetable or corn oil for brushing

16 or so spring large spring onions, trimmed

8 bamboo or metal skewers

Preheat a ribbed griddle pan or heavy frying pan. Weave the chicken and olives on to skewers. Lightly season and brush with oil. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side and keep warm. Grill the spring onions for a minute on each side and arrange on plates with the chicken.
