Mediterranean Couscous and Chicken Wraps

Tricia passed on this recipe to me and I've already made it twice!  It was a hit with the whole family and super easy to pull together.  I made the couscous mixture ahead of time, so I put the chicken on the pan to cook literally as my husband walked in the door, held the baby in my other arm, and we were eating 15 minutes later.  The flavors are subtle, but enough to not be boring.  This will be a regular on our summer menu.

1/3 cup couscous (I just used a box and cooked according to directions)
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 cup lemon juice
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
salt and pepper

1 lb. chicken tenders 
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 cucumber, chopped
10-inch spinach or sun dried tomato wraps

Cook couscous according to package.

Combine parsley, lemon juice, oil, garlic, 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a bowl.
Toss chicken w/ 2-3 Tablespoons of parsley mixture and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper, then cook in skillet until chicken is done, about 5 minutes per side.

Stir remaining parsley mixture into couscous.  Add tomato and cucumber. (Both times I forgot to add the tomato and cucumber, so I just sliced them and served them on the side)

Assemble wraps, putting approximately 3/4 cup couscous mixture on wrap with chicken.


  1. I think the 1/3 cup couscous in the directions might be a misprint... I double checked that the recipe I got said that and it did. But I used the whole box of couscous plus all the other ingredients. It made 8 ENORMOUS wraps. I took half to a new mommy wrapped in foil and we ate the other half (they keep overnight in the fridge). Did you use 1/3 cup cous cous for the entire recipe?

  2. I used a box and it made enough for leftovers.
