  • A splash of rapeseed oil
  • 400 g baby courgettes (sliced into bitesize pieces)

  • 2 small red onions (sliced into bitesize pieces)
  • 200 g dried couscous
  • A handful of chopped mixed herbs (- basil, coriander and flat leaf parsley)

  1. Step 1: Heat the oven to 200°c / Gas Mark 6.

  5. Step 5: Mix up the yogurt and coriander dressing by adding the yogurt, lemon zest, and chopped coriander to a small bowl and mixing to combine.
  6. Step 6: Top the couscous with the sliced cooked chicken breast and add a spoonful of lemon and coriander yogurt dressing to serve.
