This recipe has tomatoes, peppers, carrots, cucumber, cabbage, chicken and couscous with delicious creamy Tzatziki Sauce.

Ingredients
 

  • 1 1/2 cups dry pearl couscous, (3 cups prepared)
  • 2 cups shredded chicken
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 3-4 carrots, (or 1 cup sliced)
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/4 head of red cabbage
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Tzatziki Sauce Ingredients*:

  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt, full fat
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh dill
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • Prep Produce: Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Cut the bell pepper, carrots, and cucumber into small cubes. Chop the cabbage into small pieces. Set aside.
  • Make the Sauce: Chop the fresh dill. Peel and mince the garlic cloves. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Then grate or finely chop the cucumber. TIP: To save time (and avoid chopping), I put the garlic and cucumber through a garlic press. Perfectly minced ingredients in less than 30 seconds! Stir all the Tzatziki sauce ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. Store in a sealed container in the fridge until ready to use!
  • Cook Couscous: Cook the couscous according to package instructions. The ratios are normally 1.25 portions of liquid to every 1 portion of couscous. TIP: When cooking the couscous use chicken stock instead of water to add extra flavor. Season the couscous with the salt and garlic powder.
  • Assemble: Toss the shredded chicken with ½ cup of the Tzatziki sauce. Place the couscous, veggies and chicken in 4 different bowls (or containers to enjoy later). Top with additional Tzatziki sauce as desired! Enjoy!
