Per serving


Stovetop, Frying pan, Pot (small)


Green beans (fresh)

Step 1

Boil a pot of salted water. Wash & snap off the ends of the green beans if necessary.

Step 2

Add the green beans to salted, boiling water & cook for 10-12 min. If you are using frozen green beans, cook them for 2-3 min. Once cooked, drain the beans.


Step 3

In a shallow bowl or plate, add the egg, a pinch of salt & pepper. Beat the eggs with a fork or whisk.

Flour (all-purpose)
Chicken breast

Step 4

On another dish add flour. Coat the chicken in flour & then egg.

Bread crumbs (plain)

Step 5

Add the breadcrumbs to a third plate & coat the chicken in breadcrumbs. For a thicker crust, coat it a second time in the beaten egg mixture, the once more in breadcrumbs.

Canola oil

Step 6

Heat about a 1/4 cup of oil in a medium pan. The oil should reach about 1/2 way up the chicken, once it's added. Test the oil temperature by throwing in a bit of the breadcrumbs. If they immediately bubble up, carefully add the chicken.

Step 7

Pan-fry the chicken over medium heat until nicely browned on the first side, about 4 min. Flip the chicken over and let it brown for 4 more min on the other side.


Step 8

Meanwhile, boil a pot of water. In a medium bowl, mix the dry couscous with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Then pour over the boiling water (equal volume water : couscous) Cover the bowl & let the couscous rest for 5 min. Uncover, mix well & set aside.

Step 9

Once browned, transfer the fried chicken to a paper towel lined plate or cutting board.

Step 10

Slice the chicken.

Step 11

Serve the breaded chicken over couscous & green beans. Re-season according to your taste & add some fresh herbs, if you have. Enjoy!
