Easy Jerk Chicken Kebabs with Caribbean Couscous

Add some island flavour to your summer dining! Easy and packed full of flavour from our Ultimate Jerk Paste these fruity chicken skewers are great for a barbecue or cooked on a grill pan if the weather isn’t ideal. Our Caribbean-inspired Couscous is the perfect accompaniment for a delicious meal.


Place the chicken pieces in a bowl, add three quarters of the Ainsley Jerk Paste, the lime juice and a drizzle of oil. Toss to coat the meat well. Cover and chill to marinate for at least 2 hours.

Thread the chicken, vegetable and pineapple chunks onto skewers, drizzle with oil and cook on a preheated barbecue or griddle for 10-12 minutes, turning regularly and basting with the reserved Jerk paste, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Meanwhile, prepare the couscous according to the packet instructions and fluff with a fork.Serve the kebabs with the couscous and scatter with coriander.
