This chicken skewers with fiery noodle salad recipe came from Jaime Oliver’s 30-Minute Meals cookbook. The first time that you make it it may take you more than 30 minutes to prepare, but let me tell you, it’s WELL worth the effort. My entire family LOVED this meal, and I hope yours does too. 🙂

Enjoy!
