Chicken and Hummus Couscous Salad


Okay so I normally grab a sandwich for lunch, or have leftovers from tea the night before, but today I thought I would spice things up as I had some time this morning to make my pack-up. To my surprise this literally took me 10minutes to make so I will definitely be doing it again!

Serves 1


  • 60g dry couscous
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp dried coriander
  • 1/2 tsp dried cumin
  • 160ml boiled water
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cucumber, chopper
  • Leftover chicken (swap for chickpeas or beans for a veggie version)
  • 1-2 teaspoons hummus
  • 1 bunch of fresh coriander, chopped


  1. Mix the dry couscous and spices together, and cover with boiled water.
  2. Leave for 5 minutes, or until the couscous has absorbed all the water.
  3. Fluff the couscous with a fork to separate.
  4. Mix in the chicken, cucumber, pepper and fresh coriander.
  5. Put in a sealable container (if making a pack-up) and top with hummus.
  6. Enjoy!
