Chicken and broccoli lunch bowl
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Serves 4
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Ingredients:

1 - Broccoli - one head separated in to florets

2 - Whole wheat grain cous cous - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup

3 - Dried Italian herb seasoning - 3/4 tsp + 3/4 tsp
Onion powder - 1/2 tsp + 1/2 tsp
Garlic powder - 1/2 tsp + 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp + 1/4 tsp
Black pepper - 1/8 tsp + 1/8 tsp

4 - 2 tablespoons olive oil

5 - Boneless, skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced - 500 g

Method:

- Steam cook brocoli. In a microwavable bowl add brocoli with 1 tbsp of water and cook on full power for 8 minutes.

- Boil water in a kettle. Pour a cup of this water in a bowl, stir in the couscous, 3/4 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Cover the bowl tight and let the couscous steam until tender, about 5 minutes.

 - Heat the oil in a large (preferably nonstick) skillet over medium heat. As the skillet heats up, season the chicken with the remaining 3/4 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Spread the chicken out evenly in the hot pan and cook until done, about 4 to 6 minutes, flipping once. (To check for doneness, cut a piece in half and make sure there is no pink.)

- Get out 4 bowls; spread the couscous on the bottom of each bowl, then add the broccoli and top with the chicken. Serve hot or cool to room temperature and refrigerate to enjoy as lunches throughout the week (they reheat well in the microwave).







Enjoy!!!
