    For the chicken bowl

  • precooked or leftover chicken breasts

  • 0.5 cup couscous cooked

  • 1 cup Romaine lettuce

  • 0.5 cup chopped English cucumber

  • 0.5 cup cherry tomatoes sliced

  • Place lettuce in the bottom of salad bowl. Layer on chicken, cucumber, tomatoes and red onion. Top with 1/2 cup cooled couscous.
