Ingredients

  • 4 10-inch spinach or sun-dried tomato wraps or tortillas
  • 1 pound(s) chicken tenders
  • 1 cup(s) chopped cucumber
  • 1/3 cup(s) couscous (whole-wheat if possible)
  • 3 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup(s) fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 cup(s) fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup(s) lemon juice
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 2 teaspoon(s) minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup(s) water

Preparation

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

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

  5. 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.
