While the cooking prowess of AFL stars is often thought to be limited by the strict diets and demanding schedules of a professional athlete, a new online cooking series created Obela hommus and the afl.com.au has shown a different side to some of the biggest names in the AFL.
Nathan Jones loves a Sunday afternoon BBQ with his mates. His marinated chicken kebabs is the recipe he keeps up his sleeve to impress his mates and at a bit of diversity to the good old steak and sausages.
Serves: 4 people
450g boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped into chunks (about 3cm in size)

1/8 tsp. turmeric
1 red capsicum, chopped into chunks (about 3 inch in size)
1 small onion, chopped into chunks (about 3 inch in size)
Salt and pepper to taste
STIR chicken, ½ the container of the Obela Savoury Garlic Hommus and tumeric together in a small mixing bowl

PREHEAT the grill.
