Caramel & mustard chicken skewers

Serves 4   Prep 20 mins, plus marinating  |  Cook 20 mins

Werther’s Originals can be just as delicious in savoury dishes as they are in sweet ones – and these chicken skewers prove it!


2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
100g Greek yogurt
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp salt
20g Werther’s Original Butter Candies, ground in a high-powered food processor
½ lemon, juiced
8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized chunks
2 red peppers, cut into bite-sized chunks
2 red onions, peeled, quartered and separated
4 flatbreads, to serve
dollop of yogurt, to serve
1 tbsp pickles, to serve
pinch of chilli flakes, to serve
handful of fresh herbs, to serve


1. Add the mustard, yogurt, garlic, salt, crushed Werther’s Original Butter Candies and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine, then stir through the chicken pieces until thoroughly coated. Place in the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.

2. To assemble the skewers, alternately thread the chicken, pepper and onion until you reach the end of the stick. If using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for 30 mins before heating to prevent burning.

3. Heat the grill, then place the skewers on a foil-lined baking tray and grill for about 20 mins or until cooked, turning halfway through. Serve with flatbreads, yogurt, pickles, chilli flakes and fresh herbs.
