These deliciously easy wraps are a great way to use up leftover chicken. Bundle up in foil for a filling, portable packed lunch. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our spiced roast chicken with herb stuffing dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once.

Place the couscous in a bowl, squeeze over the lemon and add the zest, olive oil and seasoning. Pour over 260ml (8 1/2fl oz) boiled water from the kettle, stir, then cover with clingfilm or a plate and set aside to soak for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and check the seasoning.

Fold the cucumber, tomato, herbs, chicken and stuffing through the couscous. Divide generously between 4 wraps, drizzle with the yogurt, fold in the ends and roll up, securing with a cocktail stick.
