Recipe: Chicken Paella

Chicken Paella

Preparation Time: 30 minutes.
Serves 4

About 500g de-boned chicken breasts
1 cup couscous
1 cup green beans or broccoli, chopped
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 and a half cups mushrooms, finely sliced
1 red pepper, finely chopped
1 small tin non-creamed style sweet corn, rinsed and drained
Use one 1 jar/packet sweet & sour sauce or sweet pepper sauce

Cut the chicken into small pieces and cook in a non-stick pan until slightly brown - add a bit of water to the pan instead of oil or use an oil/water mix.Add the sauce and allow to simmer for 20 mins Place the vegetables in a separate non-stick pan, add some water, and steam them until they're slightly softer, but still a little bit crunchy. (You can add the vegetables to the chicken if your pan is quite large and leave them to soften in the sauce) Prepare the couscous as instructed on the box - usually about 5 mins Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and serve
