Heat the grill to high.

Cut the chicken into thin strips. Mix the yoghurt, peanut butter, curry paste, salt and lime juice together. Add the chicken and toss to coat in the mixture. Thread onto 6 small skewers. Place on a baking tray and grill for 12-15 minutes, turning regularly until the chicken is beginning to char and is cooked through.

Meanwhile prepare the couscous according to the packet instructions. Peel the carrot and cut into ribbons using a peeler. Slice the spring onions. Fluff the couscous with a fork and stir through the vegetables. Season with a squeeze of lime juice.

Serve the skewers on a bed of the couscous and scatter with torn coriander leaves just before serving.
