Nutritional information

Nutritional information is not currently available for this recipe.


Put the couscous in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for 10 to 15 minutes to swell and cool, then stir with a fork to fluff up the grains.

For a time-saving hack, simply defrost the peas by adding them to the couscous before covering with the boiling water.


Add the chicken and tomatoes, squeeze over the lemon juice, stir it all to combine, and you're done!

Microwavable pouches of couscous also work well – try mixing things up by using a spicy or tomato-flavoured version.
