Jamie Oliver often gets criticised by people saying that it took them more than 15 minutes to make his recipes, and I’m sure with some it just takes a little practise and organisation to get it done in the time. However, with the chicken in this recipe taking 8 minutes max and the cous cous soaking in a few minutes I really do think you would struggle to make this recipe take any longer than quarter of an hour.
The only element I skipped from this recipe was the tzatziki. This was mainly because I’d made a few dips for a meal the day before and we had plenty left over. I do think tzatziki would have gone brilliantly with the dish though. I loved the idea of crumbling feta over and treating the cheese as a seasoning, absolutely delicious. It gives a great salty tang to the otherwise light and fresh cous cous.
My favourite thing about this dish is the seasoning on the chicken, I’ll definitely be using it again and I’ve been thinking about different ways of using it.. perhaps for chicken kebabs to put on the BBQ? Overall, this is a really great family meal that’s easily do-able mid week and both healthy and satisfying for all the family.
