Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

Tips

Eat neat: Keeping the filling inside a wrap or burrito can be a challenge, especially if you're on the go. That's why we recommend wrapping your burrito in foil so you can pick it up and eat it without losing the filling, peeling back the foil as you go.

Simply Scrumptious This was flippin' AWESOME. I made a few changes (did not use the fresh mint or parsley... not really a fan). I also added feta cheese and kalamata olives to the mix. Instead of chicken tenders slathered some of the oil/lemon juice mixture with garlic onto chicken breasts and cooked them in that. Spread the oil mix onto the tortilla and then piled everything into the tortilla. Also used roasted garlic and olive oil couscous. The flavors in this wrap are amazing. Definitely try this. You will not regret it. Read More

I left out the mint and used rotisserie chicken to avoid heating the range. It was so easy quick and yummy! A keeper. Read More

Outstanding Sitting here eating this right now. Made as is and it is terrific. I will add Feta the next time I make this would only boost the flavor although I really don't think it needs anything else. Read More
