½ cup water⅓ cup couscous, preferably whole-wheat1 cup chopped fresh parsley½ cup chopped fresh mint¼ cup lemon juice3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil2 tsp minced garlic¼ tsp salt, divided¼ tsp freshly ground pepper1 lb chicken tender1 medium tomato, chopped1 cup chopped cucumber4 10-inch spinach or sun-dried tomato wraps or tortillas


1. Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in couscous and remove from the heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Set aside.

2. Meanwhile, combine parsley, mint, lemon juice, oil, garlic, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl.

3. Toss chicken tenders in a medium bowl with 1 tablespoon of the parsley mixture and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Place the tenders in a large nonstick skillet and cook over medium heat until cooked though, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Cut into bite-size pieces when cool enough to handle.

4. Stir the remaining parsley mixture into the couscous along with tomato and cucumber.

5. To assemble wraps, spread about 3/4 cup of the couscous mixture onto each wrap. Divide the chicken among the wraps. Roll the wraps up like a burrito, tucking in the sides to hold the ingredients in. Serve cut in half.
