Cujan Chicken CousCous

dinnerThis is one of my favourite recipes.  Simple and easy to do, a grill and some boiling water is all that is required!  High in protein and fibre, and low in fat! I make one serve to eat and pack one away for the next day for Lunch!

Serves Two

  • Chicken breast (~200g) sliced into four
  • Cujan spice mix
  • 1 small sweet potato (~100g)
  • frozen peas (or other greens)
  • 1/3 cup of dry CousCous


On a lightly oiled grill, place chicken strips and sweet potato and sprinkle with a little cujan spice seasoning before closing the grill lid and cooking ~10mins.  Turn the sweet potato half way through, 

Place dry CousCous in a bowl and add an equal amount of hot water.  Cover and let sit for 5mins.  Steam some greens or if using frozen peas, cover in hot water and microwave for 2mins or until warmed through.

When everything is cooked, dice the chicken and sweet pototo, divide between bowls and stir it in with the peas and couscous.
