4 skinless and boneless chicken breasts
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Finely grated zest of 1 lime
2 level tbsp low-fat/extra-light soft cheese
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
8 rashers back bacon, visible fat removed
Low-calorie cooking spray
Steamed mangetout, to serve
For the couscous:
300g dried couscous
Large handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 small red onion, finely chopped
Preheat your oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Using a small, sharp knife, slice each chicken breast lengthways, but not all the way through, to make a deep pocket.
Mix together the garlic, lime zest, soft cheese and chilli. Season lightly and spoon into each pocket. Wrap each chicken breast in 2 bacon rashers, spray with low-calorie cooking spray and put on a baking tray. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until cooked through, then slice into 3 pieces.
Meanwhile, make up the couscous according to packet instructions, then stir in the parsley, tomatoes and red onion and fluff up the grains with a fork. Divide the couscous between 4 plates, top with the chicken and serve with mangetout.
