    • 2 skinless chicken breasts
    • Olive oil

    • 200ml (7fl oz) boiling water
    • 1tbsp mild curry paste
    • Juice of 1 lime
    • 2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes, quartered
    • For the dressing:
    • Small pot of natural yogurt
    • 1/4 cucumber, finely chopped
    • 1 heaped tbsp fresh mint, chopped


    • First get your grill or grill-pan very hot. Drizzle the chicken breasts with a little olive oil and grill or chargrill for 10-15 mins, turning once, until cooked through.

    • While the chicken is cooking, pop the couscous into a large bowl. Measure out the boiling water and stir in the curry paste and lime juice.

    • Pour the liquid over the couscous and cover it with clingfilm. After 5 mins, fluff up the couscous with a fork and add the cherry tomatoes. In a separate small bowl mix the dressing ingredients.
