4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless

2 tbsp clear honey

Juice of 3 limes

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp paprika

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

175g couscous

1 tbsp olive oil

6 tbsp fresh herbs (e.g. parsley, chives, mint and coriander, chopped)

2 tomatoes, finely chopped

Juice of 1 lemon


  1. Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and place in a bowl with the honey, lime juice, Dijon mustard and paprika. Season well and allow to marinade for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the couscous by placing in a bowl and pouring over 250ml boiling water and the olive oil. Cover and allow to stand for 20-30 minutes, fluffing the grains with a fork halfway through. Add the chopped herbs, tomatoes and the lemon juice. Season well and set aside.
  3. Place chicken on a grill rack under a medium-hot grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until it’s cooked. Serve chicken immediately with couscous.
