SW recipe: spiced chicken and courgette couscous


  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp dried red chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ras el hanout spice mix
  • juice 1 lemon
  • 4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 courgettes, sliced
  • low calorie cooking spray
  • 500g dried couscous
  • 6 tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • small handful roughly chopped fresh mint


    • Preheat the oven to 200C, gas 6.
    • Put the garlic, chilli, cinnamon and ras el hanout in a shallow bowl and season to taste. Stir in the lemon juice and add the chicken breasts, rolling them around to coat well.
    • Arrange the chicken breasts and courgette pieces in a roasting tin, spray with low calorie cooking spray and roast for 25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the courgettes are tender.
    • Meanwhile, put the couscous into a bowl and pour over enough boiling water to just cover. Leave for about 10 minutes or until the water is absorbed then fluff up the grains with a fork. Stir in the tomatoes, roasted courgettes and mint and divide between plates.
    • Slice the chicken breasts and arrange the pieces alongside the couscous. This is sensational served with a spoonful of harissa paste.
