This simple yet hearty meal is a wonderful and creative way to use up your zucchini, with no cooking necessary. Paired with our irresistible spicy lime gremolata, this is an effortless and flavour-packed dish that will elevate dinnertime to the next level.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup medium-grain couscous
  • 1 chicken breast
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup baby tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup red onion, finely sliced

Directions

  1. Cook the couscous according package directions. Fluff with a fork, set aside.

  3. Transfer to the oven, and finish cooking another 10-15 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165F.
  4. Prepare tomatoes and onions, and place in a bowl along with a couple teaspoons of the spicy lime gremolata. Toss until well combined.
  5. Prepare the zucchini into long ribbon using a vegetable peeler. Set in a bowl of cold water until ready to use.
