Reinvent the chicken dinner

We all know chicken is a crowd-pleaser at the dinner table, but sometimes it feels a little formulaic. This easy and different chicken recipe is a wonderful dish for the whole family. With its delicious taste and sophisticated appearance, you would never guess these stuffed chicken breasts were actually easy and quick to make.


Couscous stuffed chicken

½ cup Pouyoukas couscous (wholewheat, plain or flavoured)

2 tablespoons olive oil

100g mushrooms, finely chopped

50g blue cheese, crumbled

1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

4 chicken breast fillets

4 rashers middle bacon



Place the couscous in a medium bowl and add ½ cup boiling water. Cover and stand for 5 minutes. Fluff up the couscous with a fork to separate the grains.

Heat half the oil in a large frying pan and cook the mushrooms, stirring for 4-5 minutes. Set aside to cool. Add mushroom, cheese and parsley to the couscous and season with pepper.

Split each chicken fillet lengthways without cutting all the way through. Working with 1 fillet at a time, place between 2 sheets of baking paper and pound with a rolling pin to flatten. Season inside of chicken with pepper. Place ¼ of the couscous mixture on half of the chicken, leaving a 1cm edge. Fold over chicken to enclose the filling, pressing edges together. Wrap with a rasher of bacon. Repeat with remaining chicken, couscous mixture and bacon.

Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the chicken parcels for 5-6 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through.


Pouyoukas Foods will be launching a new recipe book next year with many mouth-watering recipes.
