Chicken Fillet, Couscous & Vegetables

Hello Food Lovers,

I hope you've all had a lovely day and the sun is shinning wherever you are?

I can't boast of a lovely weather here as the sunshine has disappeared again and the torrential rain is back :-(

I have another healthy dinner choice for you today.

You've probably noticed that I love couscous, well what's not to like?

Couscous provides you with essential nutrients to help maintain your overall health. It's light, delicious and can be eaten as a side dish or dessert.


You can buy the already made couscous from the salad bar in the supermarket or buy the dry grains in a packet as shown below. I prefer to buy the dry grains and add a few other bits to it such as mushrooms, onions, sweetcorn, olives and bell peppers.

Couscous has been a great alternative to rice and pasta for me.
