Chicken and Mango Corn Couscous Salad

It’s been a while since I’ve done a recipe, so I decided to raid the kitchen cupboard and test run some new to me gluten free products I’ve been meaning to try for ages. I missed couscous mainly because it’s so easy to make and also as either a side or a main. So the weather has been quite warm recently, so I decided to make a refreshing and healthy salad, that is perfect for summer.

Ingredients

Corn Couscous
Mango peeled and cubed
Chicken Breast (1 per a person)
Yuzu  Marinade
Cucumber, peeled and chopped
Salad leaves
Fresh Mint
1 Small Pomegranate

Dressing

Salt pepper
Olive Oil
Juice of one lemon.

Prep and cooking time: Approx 30mins

Method

Fry the chicken breasts in a griddle pan lightly coated with oil until cooked, when cooked, take out, chop in to cubes coat with a few tablespoon of Yuzu seasoning and return to the pan for a few minutes.

Whilst the chicken breast is cooking, line the plate with a bed of salad leaves and prepare the corn couscous as per the instructions.

Once the couscous is cooked place in the centre of the the plate. Add the mango, cucumber and cooked chicken, sprinkle with a some pomegranate seeds, chopped mint and marinade. This dish also works just as well with papaya. To make the marinade, add a tablespoon of olive oil to the juice of one lemon and some salt and pepper and whisk until mixed.

I have to say corn couscous is a very good substitute for regular couscous which is usually made from semolina or durum wheat, it has a slightly more crunchy texture but I quite like that.

Enjoy!

  1. Giant yums!!! I've been hunting (locally and when we travel) for GF couscous for years now to no avail. It's awesome that you're able to find it where you live. If I can find a site with budget-friendly shipping, I might need to order some online one of these days.

    Thank you for sharing this scrumptious recipe with us.
