Herbed chicken with lemon couscous
- 1 cup couscous
- 1 cup broccoli or broccolini, chopped into small florets
- zest and juice of 1 lemon
- 2 chicken breasts, cooked
- few pieces sun-dried tomato, chopped
- 2 tablespoons cashew nuts, chopped
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ½ cup chopped fresh basil
1 Put the couscous into a heatproof bowl with the broccoli. Add the lemon zest and juice then pour over boiling water, just enough to cover. Cover with a plate or plastic wrap to trap the steam inside, then set aside for 5 minutes.
2 Meanwhile, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Add to the couscous mixture with the sun-dried tomatoes, cashew nuts, olive oil and basil. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, mix well and serve.
