Bowls look attractive thanks to their many different ingredients. To save time, they can be combined with a few ready-to-eat ingredients. In addition, all other ingredients can be prepared in advance (except for the chicken). They're therefore the perfect dish if you want to make a varied meal for your guests the day before, so you can enjoy the evening with your friends and avoid the stress of preparing food at the same time.

How it's done

Israeli salad

Mix the tomatoes, cucumber and parsley in a bowl. Stir in the lemon juice and olive oil, and season with herb salt.

Couscous

Place the couscous in a bowl. Pour over double that amount of boiling water, cover, and allow to stand for approx. 10 mins., then stir in the butter and oil and allow to cool. Separate the couscous with two forks.

Chicken

Wash the chicken, pat dry, and place in a bowl. Combine the spice mix with the honey and Vermouth, add to the chicken, mix, cover, and marinate in the fridge for approx. 30 mins. Remove the chicken from the marinade, fry briefly in a non-stick frying pan, add the rest of the marinade, and simmer until the chicken is cooked.
