Winner Winner Greek Chicken Dinner

I am trying to get us back on track for more healthy eating. We are going to use the Mediterranean diet guidelines. IF it isn't fresh, leafy green and chicken or fish, its a no go.
Shawn cut the chicken breast into strips like fajitas and I browned them in Rosemary I blended the devil out of in my SILVER BULLET grinder , fresh garlic and grapeseed oil.
Then I made a Greek type salsa with Lemon Cucumbers, Mint, parsley, tomatoes, lemon juice and red onion.

Then I made a Cous Cous warm side dish. To this I added tomatoes, lemon juice, red bell pepper and mint and parsley.
Cous Cous is easy peasy, cook it first, then add the fresh ingredients after its done. Voila!
I bought the tzatziki this time, I would have liked to make it fresh, but I was in a huge hurry last night. Got to love Trader Joe's. This picture came in sideways and I don't know why, but you can see the Cous Cous side dish and the salsa and tzatziki if you turn your head.
Then you buy the NON Pita bread, Nan bread or I bought the middle eastern bread. It's all the same basically. Flat bread is super yummy. You make them like Tacos, and boy howdy they are soo good. If you have ever had a GYRO sandwich, this is the same but with Chicken. I will skip the lettuce next time, it kept falling out.

Then the leftovers you can just eat the cous cous cold with the left over chicken on top, like a Tabouli salad that you pay big $$$ more in a restaurant.
Next dish? Fish and bean and corn salsa side. Hungry yet?

I love tzatziki sauce! I make it myself with yogurt and cucumbers. I didn't know Trader Joe's carried it! I will definitely have to be making a trip over there soon. It all looks so good, you're making me hungry.
