Chicken shawarma with rainbow couscous


Serves 4

Ready in about 1 hour, plus marinating

8-10 skinless and boneless chicken thighs

1 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp sweet smoked paprika

1 tsp turmeric

Juice of 2 lemons

2 garlic cloves, crushed

200g plain dried couscous

250g red cabbage, diced

1 red onion, finely chopped

250g tomatoes, diced

1 cucumber, diced

1 tbsp red wine vinegar Sliced pickled jalapeños, to serve

200g fat-free natural Greek-style yogurt, to serve

1 Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Spread the chicken thighs out on a large plate or tray. Mix together half the cinnamon, the cumin, paprika, turmeric, half the lemon juice and the garlic. Spoon over the chicken and toss to coat.

2 Open out the chicken thighs, then stack them on top of each other on a chopping board, like you’re making a tall sandwich. Push 4 wooden skewers (soaked in water) or metal skewers all the way down through the stack, evenly spaced apart. Leave to marinate for 15 minutes.

3 Sit the chicken in a roasting tin and bake for 45 minutes, or until cooked through. Meanwhile, mix the couscous with the remaining cinnamon in a large heatproof bowl, then pour over 250ml boiling water and cover with cling film. Set aside for 10 minutes, then fluff up the couscous with a fork. Stir through the red cabbage, onion, tomatoes, cucumber, remaining lemon juice and vinegar, and season.

4 Remove the chicken from the oven and use a knife to slice down between each skewer to make 4 kebabs. Divide the couscous between 4 plates and add a skewer to each. Serve topped with the sliced jalapeños and dollops of the yogurt.
