Mediterranean Power Bowl- Makes 4 Bowls
  • Ingredients:
    • 12 oz cooked & shredded chicken breast
    • 8 oz (about 2 cups cooked) cous cous
    • 2 cups chopped spinach arugula mix
    • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
    • 1 whole cucumber
    • ½ red onion 
    • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    • ½ lemon, juiced
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp dried oregano
    • ¼ tsp coriander 
    • 3 tsp fat free feta cheese 
  • Cooking Instructions:
    • First, place chicken breasts in a pot and cover with water. Add salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder to the water to help flavor chicken, omit the salt to make it low sodium. Bring to a boil for 10-15 minutes (depending on thickness of the chicken). Remove the chicken and set aside. 
    • Take a carrot peeler and make cucumber ribbons. Add thinly sliced red onion, cucumber ribbons, coriander, salt, oregano, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice to a bowl and mix. Set aside so the onion and cucumber become lightly pickled. 
    • Cook couscous (we used minute couscous and omitted the olive oil/ butter).
    • Half the cherry tomatoes and shred chicken. Add about ½ cup of couscous and 3 oz of shredded chicken to each container. Add cucumber salad, tomatoes, spinach arugula mix and feta cheese. 
    • Store in your fridge and eat either hot or cold throughout the week!
