Cut thin pieces of chicken, and sear in a hot frying pan. Use minimal oil, if you have an oil spray that would be best
Only turn the chicken once. To get that seared chicken taste. Once cooked remove from pan and put aside.
In the same pan (keep that chicken taste) add 125ml of water. Bring to boil
When you start seeing bubbles appear add, 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil.
Add some salt for taste. You don't have to, if your cutting down you sodium intake. Combine and stir together, then remove from heat.
Add 1/2 cup of Cous Cous by lightly sprinkling it into the pan
Cover with a tea towel. Or use a lid for safety. Let the cous cous rest for 3 minutes.
In the mean while. Cut a small chilli, and 3 cherry tomatoes.
Using a fork, break the cous cous up, then remove from pan.
Add some oil spray to the pan, and fry the chilli and tomatoes together, fry for 30 seconds. BEWARE When frying chilli with its seeds as it can create a harsh oder that can cause you to cough.
