Ingredients

  • 6 chicken thigh fillets (about 540g)
  • 95g Jerk Paste
  • 225g pack pineapple chunks
  • 1 green pepper, deseeded and cut into 3cm pieces
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 400g can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 250g pack microwave brown basmati rice
  • 1/2 x 28g pack coriander, leaves and stalks separated
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • 2 limes

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180?C, gas mark 4. Cut the chicken thigh fillets into large chunks, then toss in a bowl with the jerk paste. Thread onto skewers, alternating with chunks of pineapple and pieces of green pepper.

  2. Cook the skewers in the oven for 10-15 minutes until thoroughly cooked, the juices run clear and there is no pink meat, then transfer to a medium-hot barbecue or preheated griddle pan for 2-3 minutes on each side.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion over a medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes until just golden. Add the beans, rice and chopped coriander stalks, frying for 2 minutes until heated through. Stir in the coconut milk and the zest and juice of 1 lime; season and heat through. Serve with the chicken and pineapple skewers, the coriander leaves and the remaining lime cut into wedges.

Cook’s tip

Use leftover coconut milk in summery seafood curries or to make berry ice lollies (find recipes at waitrose.com). Alternatively, it freezes well.
