Garlic chicken with couscous


  • Put the couscous in a bowl and pour over an equal volume of boiling water, following the instructions on the packet.
  • Set aside for about 5-10 minutes until the grains have absorbed all the water.
  • Fork through and fluff up.
  • Meanwhile, cook the chicken pieces in a hot sauté pan or wok that has been sprayed lightly with oil.
  • Cook over a high heat, turning the chicken frequently, until it is golden brown all over, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the crushed garlic and stir-fry for1-2 minutes, until softened but not brown.
  • Season with salt and plenty of ground black pepper and then sprinkle with parsley.
  • Stir the chopped tomatoes and spring onions into the couscous.
  • Add the lemon juice and seasoning and serve immediately with the hot garlic chicken.


Stir-fry the chicken as above but add some finely chopped chilli and grated root ginger instead of garlic.

Sprinkle with soy sauce just before serving with rice, not couscous.
