Ingredients
  • WW Mexican Couscous Cup
    3 individual, (3x39g)
  • skinless chicken breast
    720 g, (4x180g fillets)
  • Mixed salad leaves
    120 g
  • cherry tomato
    250 g, halved
  • frozen corn kernels
    100 g, thawed
  • WW Fava Beans, Roasted, Lightly Salted
    2 packet(s), (2x20g)
  • lime juice
    1 tbs
  • oil spray
    1 x 3 second spray(s)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place couscous in a medium heatproof bowl. Add 1 cup (250ml) boiling water. Stir, cover and set aside for 6-7 minutes or until liquid has absorbed. Scrape with a fork to separate grains.
  3. Cut a deep pocket in the side of each chicken breast (do not cut all the way through). Spoon couscous into pockets, pressing firmly, and secure with a toothpick.
  4. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over high heat. Cook chicken for 1 minute each side or until browned. Transfer to prepared tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer chicken to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before removing toothpicks.
  5. Meanwhile, combine salad leaves, tomatoes, corn, fava beans and juice in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Serve salad with chicken.
Notes
