Chicken Tikka & Pineapple Skewers

Cut chicken thighs into 3 pieces, then transfer to a large bowl. Add all remaining chicken tikka marinade ingredients to a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth. Add chicken tikka marinade to chicken thighs and stir to coat. Cover and leave to marinade for 4-24 hours.
To a separate bowl, add all minty yoghurt sauce ingredients and mix until combined.
To cut your pineapple into chunks, slice the top end off, then cut in half lengthways, then cut each pieces in half again lengthways, leaving you with quarters. Carefully cut the core out of each half, then finally cut into large chunks.
Light coals on your BBQ 20 mins before you are ready to cook your chicken.
Add chicken and pineapple to your OXO skewers, then head over to the BBQ. Once coals are white all over, cook skewers for approx 10-15 mins (depending on heat of coals), whilst turning 3-4 times. Check they are cooked through and showing some charring, before removing from BBQ.
Serve immediately on a bed of chopped romain lettuce, radishes and tomatoes. Top with minty yoghurt sauce.
