Almost CORE Cheesy Pepper Chicken CousCous

A tasty meal ready in 5 minutes!
NB - this recipe uses a small amount of low fat Cheddar cheese, which is not Core (1.5 pts)

Serves: 1

Difficulty: Easy - ready in 5 minutes


  • 125 g chopped Smoked chicken breast fillet (or strongly smoked lean ham/bacon)
  • 2/3 cup skim milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup dry couscous
  • NOT CORE * 20g grated low fat cheddar (eg Coon Light and Tasty 1.5pts)
  • 1 1/2 cups of left over vegies or frozen vegies (I used frozen spinach and mixed veg)
  • 1 spring onion
  • ground pepper (coarse)

In a nonstick pan, warm the milk and milk, add vegies and simmer for 2 minutes before adding the chicken/ham. Simmer another minute, then add the couscous and as much pepper as you can take. After 2-3 minutes, the couscous should have absorbed the milk. Turn stove off and stur though the cheese and spring onion.

On Core? This is 1.5 pts for the cheese
