Ingredients (For two) – easily halved

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 mug couscous
  • 1 mug boiling chicken stock
  • 1 chopped preserved lemon (posh) or grated rind from half a lemon
  • Handful of pitted green olives
  • 1 tbs Harrisa sauce(posh) or other chilli sauce
  • Handful of rocket or watercress
  • Olive oil
  • Chopped fresh coriander (posh) or don’t bother

Cut the chicken and pepper into strips about the size and shape of a long USB stick. Mix with the harrisa or chilli sauce and a little olive oil.  Heat a glug of oil in a pan, and stir fry the chicken and peppers until charred. Pour the hot chicken stock over the couscous in a bowl and leave for five minutes to absorb. Now throw the couscous, chicken, lemon, olives, pepper, rocket together, mix up and scatter coriander over. Done. It should look like a colourful mixture!
