Another day, another change to my menu plan!! As we didn’t eat the roast chicken at the weekend we had that last night so I thought I’d use yet more leftover chicken (this time the legs and thighs) and revisit an old favourite – Chicken with roasted veg and couscous…
A pack of mixed peppers and a red onion
A cup each of dried couscous & boiling water
Some liquid stock
Dried herbs and seasoning
Squirt of garlic
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Leftover chicken or lamb
Put the kettle on and heat either a frying pan or griddle
Meanwhile rough chop the peppers and red onion – Add to the pan and dry fry or griddle
Put the couscous, mixed herbs, liquid stock and garlic in a lidded bowl. Pour over boiling water & mix.
Cover and leave to stand for 5 minutes By which time the veggies should be cooked so turn off the heat.
Season the couscous, add a squeeze of lemon juice & almonds then mix in the veggies
Add some leftover chicken (or lamb) and transfer to your lunchbox
I was cooking for 2 but still have lots of veggies leftover. You could either store these for another day or do what I’ve done in the past and use M&S frozen Mediterranean vegetables. They come ready chargrilled so you just griddle what you need from frozen!!
Hope your lunch is just as Flabulous!!
