Couscous Salad With Roasted Honey Dijon Chicken – 库斯库斯沙拉

With Christmas around the corner, here’s a colorful starter that’s not only tasty but healthy to boot! For those unaware, couscous is a fibre-rich item that is largely fat free has been trending and popular in the in various parts of the world.

We used chicken thighs for their flavour, and marinated with melted butter, dijon mustard, honey, salt, and left it overnight (or 4 hours depending). With that out of the way, you prep the oven and roast the meat, then the pumpkin. We used San Remo CousCous, made of durum wheat milled into fine semolina, as not only is it a good source of fibre, it is also easy to cook. After mixing, add in cranberries, pistachios, and mint leaves – finish it off with feta cheese and pomegranate seeds and mix.

Festive salad is now ready and good to serve for the family!
