The instruction how to make Mediterranean-style chicken couscous

  1. Place the chicken, oil, garlic and pepper in a shallow dish. Toss to combine. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 the chicken mixture and cook for 2-3 minutes, tossing, until just cooked. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with foil to keep warm and set aside. Repeat with the remaining chicken mixture.
  2. Increase heat to high and add stock and lemon juice to the pan. Cook, scraping the base of the pan to dislodge any residue, until the liquid comes to the boil. Remove from the heat and add the couscous. Cover and stand for 2-3 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Use a fork to separate the grains.
  3. Add the chicken, lemon rind, tomatoes, olives, parsley, green shallots and capers. Toss well to combine. Serve immediately
