I've just seen a TV programme called Nigella Bites where she made a quick supper dish of chicken marinated in lemon and olive oil and served it with a greek yoghurt, coriander and something else sauce and couscous with chick peas.

I'd love the recipe please if anyone has it and has time to post it. It looked quick and easy but tasty too.

TIA.

I've got the book but I can't see a chicken recipe with greek yoghurt. The closest is spatchcocked chicken - if I recall the programme she did this at a barbeque where it rained?
The only other chicken dishes in the book are:
Southern-style chicken (deep fried with cayenne powder)
chicken with chorizo and cannellini
Vietnamese chicken and mint salad

thanks for looking cupcakes. I checked the TV company's website as well and under the Nigella heading they dont have the recipe that was on the TV tonight. Strange huh? She was offering it as a quick 'oh dear I've got people coming for supper' recipe and served it with a chocolate mousse thing for dessert. Guess I'll have to wing it and do it from memory.

thanks again for looking.

The recipe is actually in how to eat. I do it often - though it can't really be called a recipe. (Very weirdly I have just gone to get How to Eat to make sure I give you the true Nigella version, and it opened on the right page!)

Marinade 6 breasts in juice of 2 lemons and 6 tbsps olive oil. (Beat them if they are fat). Pan fry

Finely chop decent bunch spring onions, 1 green chilli, 2 cloves garlic, 2-4 tbsps coriander and same amount of mint, 400g tub greek yoghurt.
Optionally add 1/2 cucumber cubed.

For the cous cous, 350g couscous, 2 tsps Marigold Bouillon, 1/2 teasoon cumin, 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Add to 450ml Boiling water, bring to boil, turn off. Tast 60g pine nuts, warm 400g tim chick peas, Mix all together with 30g butter.


In the 5 minute prufrock version I tend to use 1/2 red onion rather than spring and no garlic(less fiddly), no cucumber and miss out the chilli for the sake of my baby. I also don't usually bother to toast the pine nuts, and I put mymchick peas into the boiling water for a few minutes before adding the cous cous to save on washing up.
