Healthy Recipe: Wrap It Up!

I love this wrap from EATING WELL Magazine.  It’s stuffed with chicken tenders and couscous (recipe below) with a hit of lemon and a healthy dose of fresh herbs.  You can also use veggies instead of chicken.  Serve with:  Mixed green salad

 4 servings

Active Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients
Preparation
  1. Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in couscous and remove from the heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, combine parsley, mint, lemon juice, oil, garlic, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Toss chicken tenders in a medium bowl with 1 tablespoon of the parsley mixture and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Place the tenders in a large nonstick skillet and cook over medium heat until cooked though, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Cut into bite-size pieces when cool enough to handle.
  4. Stir the remaining parsley mixture into the couscous along with tomato and cucumber.
  5. To assemble wraps, spread about 3/4 cup of the couscous mixture onto each wrap. Divide the chicken among the wraps. Roll the wraps up like a burrito, tucking in the sides to hold the ingredients in. Serve cut in half.
