Ingredients for Couscous Salad with Chicken Kebab:
- 75 gr couscous
- 1 red or yellow bell pepper, deseeded and chopped
- 1 cucumber with peel in mini cubes
- 6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 1 spring onion, cut into rings
- 3 tbs olive oil
- 100 gr cream cheese or crumbled feta
- 100gr chicken breast, cut into blocks
- 1 tbs soy sauce or sweet soy sauce (ketjap manis)
- 1 tbs fried onions
- 4-5 skewers
Preparation method for Couscous Salad with Chicken Kebab:
Prepare the couscous according to the package directions and allow it to cool.
Cube the chicken fillet. An easy way to do so is by using frozen and partially thawed chicken breast. This will help you get even blocks, which are most suitable for making kebabs. Sprinkle the chicken for kebabs with salt and freshly ground pepper. Mix the soy sauce with the chicken in a bowl. It is best to allow the chicken to soak all the flavors for at least half an hour, in room temperature, before grilling. Another helpful idea is to place the wooden skewers in water and soak them for at least an hour before using them, in order to avoid burning them during grilling. One by one, add the chicken cubes on the skewers.
Spoon the pepper, cucumber, tomato, green onion and 2 tablespoons olive oil into the couscous. Scoop the couscous onto a deep plate or dish and sprinkle the cheese on top. Thread the chicken cubes onto the skewer. Roast the chicken kebab in a skillet or grill pan, using the remaining olive oil. This should take around 12-15 minutes.
Serve the couscous salad next to the wonderful chicken kebabs. Bon apetit!
