Instructions

1

Place all the jerk seasoning ingredients into a bowl, place your chicken breasts in the mix. Coat evenly making sure the whole of the breasts is covered. Ideally leave it overnight, but a couple of hours will suffice.

2

When marinated, place the chicken skin side down in a medium hot pan (not too hot otherwise the marinade will burn) and leave for 2 minutes to attract colour. Turn over and place into a pre-heated over at 200°C for 25 minutes, or until the juices run clear.

3

Meanwhile, place your cous cous into a heatproof dish; add the butter and boiling hot stock.

4

Cover quickly with cling film and leave for 4 minutes so the cous cous soaks up all the remanding moisture. Stir, season and set aside.

5

Next job, salsa. Once again add all your ingredients to a bowl and mix. Season to taste.

6

Now time for plating the dish. Place a mound of cous cous on the plate, add your cooked jerk chicken breast, and smother with salsa. Garnish with bright fresh herbs.
