Ingredients

• 200g couscous
• 400ml chicken stock
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 4 courgettes , grated
• 2 lemons , 1 halved, 1 cut into wedges
• 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Method

1. Tip the couscous into a large bowl and pour over the stock. Cover and leave for 10 minutes until fluffy and all the stock have 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.

2. 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 minutes 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.
