Ingredients

  • 1 box (5.8 ounces) couscous (I used Near East roasted garlic )
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup chopped English cucumber
  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Prepare the couscous according to package directions, omitting the oil. Fluff the couscous with a fork.
  • In a large bowl combine the chicken, garbanzo beans, cucumber, tomatoes, parsley, mint and garlic. Gently stir in the couscous.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Pour dressing over couscous mixture and toss gently.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings.

Recipe Notes

I added 1 teaspoon Zaatar seasoning, which is delicious but totally optional. Other tasty additions to consider: halved kalamata olives, chopped artichoke hearts, crumbled feta cheese
