Chicken and couscous is the modern chicken and rice; there are lots of recipes with influences from Morocco to the Middle East.
One of the leanest of all meats, skinless chicken breast is a superlative protein source for the health-conscious. B vitamins are a healthy bonus.
One of my favourite couscous recipes there are great colours and flavours with ingredients like capsicum, olives and cumin.
Here chicken is roasted with a fig and pistachio couscous stuffing and basted with a spicy lemon marinade to keep the meat deliciously moist. A leafy salad with fresh oranges would make a great side dish.
This is great as a side dish with grilled meats or as a light meal on its own. Chicken is combined with cucumber, sun dried tomatoes and olives and mixed with couscous.
A Mediterranean-flavoured chicken and vegetable stew served over couscous. It's my all-time favourite and it's delicious!
