Method

Before You Begin

Prepare your ingredients & cooking utensils. Use a chopping board and lay all the ingredients out. Take out any "Pantry Items".

Washing Instruction

Wash your hands well. Rinse your mint thoroughly and drain on paper towel.

Gino's Tip

To prevent your mint browning, chop it just before you add it to your salad.

Step 1 - Couscous, Carrot and Chickpea Salad

Place your couscous and boiling water in a medium mixing bowl, cover with cling film and set aside. The couscous will cook to perfection in about 7-8 minutes. When soft and cooked, fluff and loosen the grains with a fork. Set aside till later. In a large mixing bowl combine your finely sliced red onion, julienne carrots, chickpeas, grated ginger, cranberries, and orange segments. Drizzle with a little olive oil, cover with cling film and set aside till later.

Step 2 - Sweet Chilli Dressing

Using a small mixing bowl, whisk your DD Lemon and Sweet Chilli with a few dashes of olive oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

Step 3 - Turkish Chicken

Season your chicken breasts with your DD Turkish Spice Mix, salt and pepper. Heat a large frying pan over med-high heat, add a glug of olive oil and fry your chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side. If underdone, cook for 1-2 minutes longer on each side, but bear in mind that flattened breasts should cook really quickly.

To serve

Divide your couscous amongst your servings, dress your carrot and chickpea salad with your sweet chilli dressing and place this on top of your couscous. Finish with your crumbled feta and chopped mint. Serve with your Turkish chicken. Enjoy!
