Gluten-free chicken cous-cous and spicy courgettes

An easy and gluten-free cous cous, made from millet, a not very well known grain (it is actually a grass seed). Similar to cous-cous and easy digestible, millet is great if accompanied by roasted vegetables and some grilled meat, perfect for luch boxes and as easy dinner for the whole family.

This one, is very simple and done with very easy to find ingredients, yet truly delicious. I felt full for the rest of the day, but at the same time light and full of energy.


  • A packet of chicken fillets
  • 100 grams of millet
  • 4 medium cougette
  • 2 gralic cloves
  • some fresh thyme
  • tumeric
  • some chilly flakes
  • extra virgin olive olive
  • half a  lemon
  • sea salt to taste


Wash and slice the courgette, put them in a pan with the garlic, some chilly flakes and some olive oil. Let them pan fry at low/medium heat in order not to burn the oil, and adding a little water where necessary.

Cook the chicken fillets, in a pan with some olive oil, garlic, thyme and two slice of lemon. In the meantime cook the millet, as you would do for quinoa, using two parts of water per millet and adding a little turmeric and some fresh thyme.

When everything is ready, put together in a serving plate, adding a sprinkle of lemon juice. Dinner is ready! You an use the left over for a great lunch box.
