Serve this warm, oh-so-satisfying griddled chicken dish with a spicy tomato couscous and a dollop of homemade tzatziki on the side.


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 200ml boiling water
  • 1 tbsp curry paste
  • ½ lime
  • 150g couscous
  • Good handful of cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh mint leaves to garnish


  1. Heat a griddle pan, then add the chicken breasts – skin side down – and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning once (or cook under a hot grill).
  2. Meanwhile, measure out 200ml boiling water and stir in the curry paste and the juice of half a lime. Pour the water over the couscous and set aside for 5 minutes.
  3. Quarter the cherry tomatoes and mix into the couscous. Divide the couscous between 2 plates, place a chicken breast on top and garnish with mint leaves.
