Couscous Bowl!

We love some couscous in our house. I usually make it as a side to a meal, but decided to try something a little different this time around. I’m glad I did! This recipe is delicious and filling but still ‘light’ on the stomach.

I think it’s perfect for summer!

When I started making this, I was not expecting to post a recipe for it, so I don’t have a nice shot of all the ingredients together. There are a few parts to the recipe, but I promise it is NOT a complicated meal to put together!

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • Sliced thin
    • Seasoning: 1 tsp garlic powder, salt & pepper, 1 tsp Italian seasoning
    • Saute in medium pan with 1 tsp coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 package Couscous
    • Prepare per directions on the box, set to side
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 tomato, diced
  • 6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • feta cheese
  • Dressing: 1/4 cup olive oil, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 Tbsp honey

First, start sauteing the chicken & cook the couscous.

While those are going, mix your onion, cucumber, tomato, & basil together in a medium bowl.

I used a mandolin slicer for my onions so I got really thin slivers.

Stir the chicken every few minutes. Once it is cooked, turn the heat to low.

Stir together all the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl.
