Turn the grill on high. Put 10 wooden skewers in a tray of cold water to soak.

For the jerk seasoning:

Mix all the spices together until well-combined.

For the satay:

Put the coriander in a blender with the chilli, garlic, peanut butter and soy sauce. Add the ginger, lime zest and the juice of 1 lime. Add the water and blitz until it forms a paste.

Toss the chicken in 45ml (3 tbsp) of the jerk seasoning. Rub oil over the chicken pieces then push them onto the skewers.

Grill the chicken on a baking sheet for 15 minutes.

For the noodles: 

Cover the noodles with boiling water in a bowl and put a plate on top. Let them soak for 6 minutes, then drain.

Toast the nuts in a frying pan on low heat.

Mix the rest of the ingredients with the nuts and stir into the noodles.

Serve the skewers with a bowl of noodles and the satay sauce. Garnish with mint and coriander.
