Chicken With Lemon & Courgette Couscous


200 grams (1 cup) couscous
400 milliliters (1 3/4 cups) chicken stock
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 courgettes (zucchini), grated
1 - 2 lemons, 1 halved, cut into wedges
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


Tip the couscous into a large bowl and pour over the stock. Cover and leave for 10 mins until fluffy and all the stock has been absorbed. Heat 1 tbsp oil and fry the courgettes until softened and crisping at the edges. Tip into the couscous, then stir in with plenty of seasoning and a good squeeze of lemon juice from one of the halves.
Halve the chicken breasts horizontally and put each piece on a sheet of cling film. Cover with another sheet and beat each piece out with a rolling pin to make it thinner. Season. Heat the remaining oil in a large pan and fry the chicken for about 2 mins on each side until cooked through. Squeeze over the juice from the other lemon half and serve with the couscous and lemon wedges on the side.


Add a touch of zest to your midweek meal with this low-fat family supper.
