Recipe by Chef Soomro Course: Quick chicken


Prep time

10 mins


  • Cumin: 1 heaped tsp ground cumin
  • Chicken Breast: 4 chicken breasts, each sliced into 3-4 strips
  • Spring Onion: 4 spring onions, sliced
  • Couscous: 250g couscous
  • Mustard: 4 tsp grainy mustard
  • White Wine Vinegar: 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • Mango: 1 large mango
  • Marmalade: 3 tbsp thick-cut marmalade


  1. Heat the grill to high. Peel and dice the mango, toss with most of the spring onions, and the cumin and rice vinegar, then set aside. Put the couscous in a large heatproof bowl, pour over 400ml boiling water, then cover with cling film and set aside.
  2. Mix together the marmalade and mustard. Lay the chicken strips in a roasting tin, then brush over half of the marmalade glaze. Grill for 4-5 mins, then turn the chicken over and brush with the remaining glaze. Grill for a further 4-5 mins until the chicken is cooked through and the glaze is bubbling. The couscous should then be ready. Stir in the mango mixture and serve with the hot chicken strips and the remaining spring onions sprinkled over.
