Mango Chicken with Couscous!

This dish is one of my all time favourites, and it just happens to be low in calories too – extra awesome points!! It’s a recipe I discovered a long time ago on the BBC Good Food website and have eaten many times since!

Here is what you will need to serve 2 hungry people.

For the Mango Chicken

  • 220g Pack of Mini Chicken Breast Fillets
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 3 tbsp Mango Chutney
  • 100ml Chicken Stock
  • 4 Spring Onions, chopped largely
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Coriander, chopped

For the Couscous

  • 100g Couscous
  • 1 Vegetable Stock Cube
  • 150ml Chicken Stock
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Coriander, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Parsley, chopped

Chop the chicken fillets into bite size pieces and heat a few squirts of a low calorie oil spray in a heavy non stick pan. Add the chicken and sprinkle over the cumin and a little salt & pepper. Cook over a medium heat until it starts to turn golden.

Meanwhile, prepare the couscous. Make the chicken stock, I used 2 of my Chicken Stock Ice Cubes and poured over 250ml of hot water. You could just as easily use dried stock cubes or fresh shop bought stock.

Put the couscous in a large bowl and crush in the vegetable stock cube. Add some salt & pepper then pour over 150ml of the chicken stock and cover with cling film. Leave for about 10 minutes to cook.

Back to the chicken, add the mango chutney to the pan and allow to bubble for a few minutes. Next, add the remaining 100ml of chicken stock and boil until its a nice sticky sauce. Add in the spring onions and continue to cook for a minute or two.

Take off the heat and stir in some coriander. Fluff the couscous with a fork and stir in the remaining coriander & the parsley.

Serve on warmed plates.

This is definitely a household favourite. It always goes down a treat with both me & the Mr and it’s only approx 330 calories per portion too. Unbelievable! Oh and did I mention that it only takes about 15-20 minutes to make? It’s the perfect quick mid-week dinner for the busy 9 til 5 folk.

Well, until next time kids.
