ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup couscous, preferably whole-wheat
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • Four 10-inch spinach or sun-dried tomato wraps or tortillas

directions

Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in the couscous and remove from the heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Set aside.

Meanwhile, combine the parsley, mint, lemon juice, oil, garlic, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Toss the chicken tenders in a medium bowl with 1 tablespoon of the parsley mixture and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Place the tenders in a large nonstick skillet and cook over medium heat until cooked though, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Cut into bite-size pieces when cool enough to handle.

Stir the remaining parsley mixture into the couscous along with the tomato and cucumber.

To assemble wraps, spread about 3/4 cup of the couscous mixture onto each wrap. Divide the chicken among the wraps. Roll the wraps up like a burrito, tucking in the sides to hold the ingredients in. Serve cut in half.
