Marinated Chicken Brochettes with Green Couscous

"Buttermilk makes a superb marinade – so much so you’ll wonder why you ever needed oil. The chicken will be luscious and tender and, with all the other wonderful flavours, you’ll forget this is in any way a diet recipe. This is also good served with Fresh Coriander Chutney, see recipe below."
