This recipe was completely random! I had no idea what I was going to make for lunch for my sisters so I opened my fridge and cupboards, put some leftovers on the counter and decided to make this chicken skewer and couscous combo.




This dish was so delicious and not to mention, clean! Without further ado, here is how I made it:-


What you will need:- (Serves 4)

Wooden Skewers

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 onion

4 cup of couscous

1 courgette

2 tomatoes

Seasoning and spices- salt, pepper, dried parsley, dried oregano, all-purpose seasoning, chilli powder, suya powder, thyme

Coriander leaves to garnish

How to:-


1- Wash your chicken breasts, cut them up into cubes and place in a bowl.

2- Season your chicken with salt, suya powder, chilli powder, all-purpose seasoning and thyme.

3- Leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour.



4- Cut your onion into pieces and skewer your chicken as show in the picture below. (Make sure to soak your wooden skewers in water for at least an hour before use in order to prevent them from burning in the oven).

5- Place your skewers on a grill tray in the oven at 160 degrees celsius for about 25 minutes. Make sure to flip them over to the other side half way through cooking.




6- Whilst the chicken breasts are in the oven, cut up your courgettes and tomatoes and lightly fry them in a pan with a bit of olive oil.




7- Then, add 4 cups of water to your pan and add your couscous. Season with salt, pepper, oregano, all-purpose seasoning, chilli powder and dried parsley.

8- Stir whilst allowing the water to soak through, put the lid on for 5 minutes, reduce the heat and let the couscous soften.



9- When the skewers and couscous are ready, take out and enjoy!
