For 4 servings

- 1/2 packet of spiced couscous or plain couscous*
- 300 g (10 oz.) bell peppers (red, green and yellow)
- 180 g (6 oz.) onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 700 g (1 1/2 lb.) tomatoes
- salt and pepper
- 500 g (18 oz.) chicken breast, thinly sliced

  1. Prepare the couscous according to the package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, brown the finely chopped onion and garlic and the sliced peppers in a casserole with 3 Tbsp. olive oil for about 5 minutes.
  3. Cut up the tomatoes and add them to the onion mixture; season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Cut the chicken strips into pieces; brown them in a sauté pan with the remaining olive oil for 5-8 minutes, depending on thickness.
  5. Combine the chicken, couscous and white wine with the vegetable mixture; correct the seasoning if necessary.
