  • 160 g couscous
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 500 g British diced chicken breast
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 30 g roast garlic paste
  • 2 lemon halved
  • 1 cucumber slice into quarters lengthways, then chopped roughly
  • 250 g baby plum tomatoes halved
  • 60 g pitted black olives roughly chopped
  • 20 g parsley roughly chopped including the stalks
  • 60 g Greek feta cheese


  • Put the couscous in a heatproof bowl with the chicken stock and 260ml of boiled water. Cover and set aside
  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp olive oil a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, add the diced chicken to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until starting to brown
  • Add the dried oregano, garlic paste and juice of 1 lemon to the chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through – this is your Greek chicken.
  • Note: please ensure you cook your chicken thoroughly (until there’s no pink meat and it’s piping hot!) as cooking equipment varies.
  • Place the chopped cucumber, tomatoes and olives to a bowl
  • Add the juice of the remaining lemon, 2 tbsp olive oil and a pinch of salt and give it a good mix up.
  • Fluff the cooked couscous with a fork then add the chopped parsley.
  • Set the Greek chicken, salad and herby couscous in the centre of the table, ready to share. Sprinkle over the feta cheese and let everyone dig in.
