greek chicken couscous


Today's post is another easy, one-pot meal...and it's healthy!  The whole dish makes 4 servings, and each serving is only 9 Weight Watchers points plus!  Oh, and it only takes half an hour or less.  Yeah, I'm a fan. :)


If you like Greek flavors, this is for you.  It combines the textures of couscous with Greek seasoning, artichokes, chicken, and delicious veggies.  It's both hearty and light, meaning you can eat a full plateful without guilt.

Begin by sauteing minced garlic in olive oil for a few minutes.

Add mushrooms, pepper, and green onion.  Continue sauteing until crisp-tender.

Add remaining veggies and chicken and stir to mix.

Then, mix in the couscous...

And finally, add chicken broth and seasonings!   Bring it to a boil.  Once it boils, immediately put the lid on and remove it from the heat.  Wait for 5 minutes before taking off the lid and fluffing with a fork.

And you are done!  Less than 30 minutes and only 1 pot equals 4 plates of deliciousness.

Greek Chicken Couscous
  • 1 t. olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 2 bunches green onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 14 oz. can artichoke hearts in water, drained
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • basil and Cavender's Greek seasoning, to taste

Saute garlic in olive oil for about 3 minutes.  Add pepper, onion, and mushrooms; continue sauteing until crisp-tender.  Stir in remaining veggies, chicken, and couscous.  Add chicken broth and seasonings, and bring to a boil.  Once it's boiling, immediately put on the lid and remove it from the heat.  Let it sit for 5 minutes before taking off the lid and fluffing with a fork.  Makes 4 servings (9 Weight Watchers points plus a serving).

PS - You can find Cavender's Greek seasoning in the spice aisle.  Use it just like you would salt - when the dish is salty enough, you are done seasoning!
