Lemon Chicken Couscous Salad

Lemon Chicken Couscous Salad ~ Quick & Easy to prepare and perfect for a light dinner or lunch ! #Healthy #CouscousRecipe #Salad #ChickenSaladRecipe
I Love the combination of Chicken and Lemon cooked any way. It is just the perfect combination, especially in this, not-too-much zesty lemon chicken couscous salad .

A couple of weeks ago, I made some Cauliflower Couscous, which Roy and Dimitri ate, but preferred it not being served as a main meal for dinner {btw, I enjoyed it tremendously!}

Therefore, when I served this salad for dinner, they were a little wary .. but fear not, as soon as they tasted the real Couscous, both tucked in and cleaned their plates - I think some seconds were added as well ;-) 

I had some leftover, which Dimitri packed for lunch the following day and the lunch box returned empty... thumbs up for this Couscous recipe then !



3 Large Chicken Fillets, cut into steaks
2 TB Olive Oil
Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
2 Lemons, scrubbed clean
1 cup Couscous
1 Yellow Bell Pepper, cut into strips
1 Green Bell Pepper, cut into strips
1 cup Hot Chicken Stock
Fresh Mint Leaves, to serve


1.) Brush the Chicken with Olive Oil and season to taste - heat a griddle pan on high - cook the Chicken until done and browned - slice into strips and drizzle with the Juice of 1 Lemon {grate the rind of half the Lemon and keep aside} - leave to cool completely.
2.) Slice up the remaining Lemon and grill both sides quickly on the same griddle pan used for the Chicken.
3.) Place the Couscous in a bowl together with the grated Lemon Rind {from step1} - pour over the Chicken Stock, cover and let stand 5 minutes - fluff with a fork and leave to cool.
4.) Mix together the Chicken, Couscous and Bell Peppers in a large mixing bowl - transfer to a serving dish and serve with the grilled Lemon Slices and Mint Leaves.
