Ingredients

  1. 1 (1 pound) seedless cucumber
  2. 1/2 cup whole flat-leaf parsley leaves
  3. 1 to 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  4. 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  5. Coarse salt and ground pepper
  6. 1 can (15.5 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  7. 1/3 cup raisins
  8. 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  9. 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  10. 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders
  11. 1/2 cup couscous

Directions

  1. Make salad: Quarter cucumber lengthwise; slice quarters 3/4 inch thick diagonally. In a medium bowl, combine cucumber, parsley, vinegar, and 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Set aside.
  2. Make couscous: In a small saucepan, combine chickpeas, raisins, 1 teaspoon oil, 1 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper; bring to a boil. Stir in couscous, and cover pot; remove from heat. Set aside (at least 5 minutes) while cooking chicken. Fluff couscous gently with a fork before serving.
  3. Make chicken: In a medium bowl, combine ginger, coriander, 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper. Add chicken and toss to coat.
  4. Cook chicken in two batches: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high; add half the chicken, and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; add remaining tablespoon oil to skillet, and repeat with remaining chicken. Serve with cucumber salad and couscous.
