300g skinless chicken breast cut into 2 cm pieces

1 tsp sesame seeds

1 courgette (medium) cut into 2cm slices

1 red pepper deseeded & cut into 2cm slices

12 red onion cut into small wedges

1 olive oil spray

salt & pepper, to taste

2 cups (60g) rocket

Marinade

1 tsp fresh ginger minced

2 garlic cloves minced

14 tsp black pepper

Methodbased on 2 servings
1

Place rice, water and salt in a saucepan and simmer, covered for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork.

2

Meanwhile, whisk marinade ingredients together in a shallow bowl. Add chicken and toss well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to a few hours.

3

Preheat a grill or BBQ on medium heat and toast sesame seeds in a small frypan for a couple of minutes until golden, and set aside.

4

While chicken marinates, spray courgette, pepper and onion with oil and season with salt and pepper and thread through skewers, alternating each vegetable.

5

Once chicken has marinated, thread pieces through a skewer and grill for 10 minutes per side or until fully cooked. Chicken should be slightly charred on the outside but tender on the inside.

6

At the same time, cook veggie skewers in a grill pan or on the BBQ (medium heat) for up to 10 minutes, turning halfway.

7

Scatter sesame seeds over chicken and serve with veggie skewers, brown rice and rocket.
