    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 150g pot natural yogurt
    • 2 tbsp Veeraswamy Gujarat Masala Curry Paste or Veeraswamy Medium Moglai Curry Paste
    • 500g pack Waitrose Chicken Breast Fillets
    • 200g couscous
    • 300ml hot chicken stock

    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 20g pack fresh coriander, chopped
    • ¼ cucumber, chopped

    3. Grate the zest from one of the limes and squeeze out the juice. Cut the remaining lime into 4 wedges.
    4. Fluff up the couscous with a fork. Stir in the lime zest and juice, olive oil, chopped coriander, cucumber and tomato. Divide the couscous and chicken between plates. Garnish each with a lime wedge and serve with mango chutney.
