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.

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

Yummy! I love this recipe! I made it for my family and we all liked it. Personally I would chop up the parsley and the mint very fine. The flavors can be a little bit too strong if you get a big mouthful of leaves and not much else. Also these are great with sour cream! Read More

These wraps are amazing! So light and refreshing. They are perfect for a summer picnic! I added kalamata olives and feta cheese to them and they were delicious. I used tomato basil wraps which went very well with all the other flavors. This is an EatingWell MUST! Read More

I wasn't a huge fan of the parsley. It made the wrap somewhat bitter. I made these again with a mexican flair. Couscous with cilantro tomatoes red onion and lime juice instead of lemon. I preferred the taste much better. Either way I love the fresh and healthy taste. Read More

I'm a vegetarian so I substituted a Quorn chicken cutlet for chicken. Very tasty. I also used a tomato basil wrap. Read More

Awesome and easy! I made it as the recipe states the first time but the second time I used prepared chicken to save time. Also we tend to just eat it plain without the wraps but both ways are perfectly tasty! Perfect for hot summer days and it is easily portable for picnics. Read More

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

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

Awesome! I made this a few days ago and both my husband and I loved it! I had the leftovers today without the wrap and actually think that tasted better. I didn't make any changes to the recipe; it's delicious as-is. Based on input of other reviews I added some feta cheese to my leftover portion. After trying it both ways I could take or leave the feta. It tasted good with the recipe but I'm not sure if it really made the recipe better or just different. I'll definitely be adding this to our list of usual dinners! So so good! Read More
