For your next house party try Adria Wu's special Chicken Courgette recipe.
160 g couscous
300 ml water,
1 tbsp olive oil,
1 bell pepper, chopped
400 g or 1 can tomatoes, chopped
400 g chicken mince
1 courgette, grated
2 stalks spring onion, sliced
50 g fresh herbs like basil and oregano (reserve some for couscous)
2 cloves garlic, diced
1/4 tsp chilli flakes
½ tbsp salt, for meatball mix
1/4 tsp pepper, for meatball mix
Salt and pepper to taste
- Soak couscous in water (does not need to be hot) for 15 mins until all water is absorbed. Add olive oil and a few pinches of salt and pepper to taste.
- Mix bell peppers and chopped tomatoes in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl, combine the chicken mince with the remaining ingredients and make golf-ball sized meatballs (should make about 10-12).
In a large pan, place the meatballs in the tomato sauce (they should not be entirely underneath the sauce) and cook for 20 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees C.
- Take out of the oven and serve with crusty bread.
