Our Recipe of the Week: CHICKEN KEBABS WITH LIME COUS COUS

INGREDIENTS

2 chicken breasts
1 red pepper, chopped into small pieces
2 cups of cous cous
1 lime
1/2 a lemon
mixed spice
ground coriander (good, but not essential)
a cup of frozen peas
2 cloves of garlic chopped

STEP 01

skewers

Fill a bowl or a dish with water and soak the skewers in the water. This will stop them burning under the grill

Put the chicken breasts onto a plastic chopping board and cut into chunks (small enough to push onto the skewers)

STEP 02

mix together

Put them in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle the chopped garlic on top, followed by the mixed spice and ground coriander (if you have any) and a generous squeeze of the lemon. Mix well and leave for 20 minutes. Turn the grill on so it heats up while the chicken is sat in the mixture.

STEP 03

put on skewer

After 20 minutes, push the chicken pieces onto the skewers and place them underneath the preheated grill.

Boil the kettle.

STEP 04

cous cous and peas

Pour the cous cous into a large bowl and add the frozen peas. Mix them into the cous cous then pour enough boiling water over them so it just covers the top of the cous cous.

Place a clean kitchen towel over the top and go back to the chicken

STEP 05

check the chicken

Take a look at the chicken and turn any pieces that need turning. If any pieces are starting to turn a golden colour, turn them over.

Keep turning the chicken kebabs until all sides are golden brown.

STEP 06

lime cous cous

By which time, the cous cous should have absorbed all the water. Run a fork through the cous cous to fluff up and separate the grains, then add the chopped red pepper and squeeze the lime over it.

STEP 07

chicken kebabs and lime cous cous

Spoon the cous cous onto a plate, then serve the chicken kebabs on top. Eat.
