    The Flying Chef's Note:

    This is such a quick recipe to make and has a wonderful flavour, it is the perfect after work meal as you can have it on the table in about 25-30 Min's. I love couscous and this is another way of preparing it with the sun-dried tomato pesto along with the chopped sun-dried tomatoes, adding such wonderful tastes. I top it with chicken which I also rub with sun-dried tomato pesto and I think it is a wonderful combination.

      This was great! I loved the lemony twist added to the pesto. I used spinach instead of arugula because the store didn't have any, but will definitely make again with the arugula. I used only 1 cup water with 1 cup couscous since I don't know what a sachet is. Thanks for posting!

      The recipe is definitely a perfect after work meal. The chicken was brushed with the pesto and instead of pan cooking, it was cooked on the George Forman grill. I had a little difficult with the couscous as I wasn't sure what a sachet was. I purchase couscous in bulk and attempted to make 2 servings. It was a little gummy and something I would have to play with to get right. All in all this is a very well flavored dish that made quick work of getting dinner on the table. Made for *Aussie Swap*
