Ingredients

  • 280g Co-op easy cook long grain rice
  • 2 tbsp jerk seasoning
  • 4 Co-op British skinless chicken breast fillets, cut into 3cm chunks
  • 3 mixed peppers, cut into chunks
  • 1 tbsp Co-op olive oil
  • 1 mango, diced
  • ½ x 25g pack coriander, roughly chopped
  • 2 limes, 1 zested and juiced,
  • 1 cut into wedges
  • 150g Co-op 0% fat Greek style natural yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

Method

  1. Cook the rice according to the pack instructions. Meanwhile, sprinkle the jerk seasoning over the chicken, tossing well to combine. Skewer the chicken and peppers onto 4 long metal skewers (or 8 smaller ones) and drizzle over the oil.
  2. Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat, then add the skewers. Cook for 15-20 mins, turning regularly, until the chicken is cooked through and the peppers are tender and lightly charred.
  3. Stir the chopped mango, half the coriander, half the lime juice and all the zest into the rice. Season.
  4. Make a dressing: mix the yogurt, garlic, remaining coriander and lime juice with some seasoning in a small bowl. Serve the rice with the skewers and dressing, plus lime wedges for squeezing over.
