Grate the carrot (see ingredients). Finely chop the garlic. Roughly chop the tomato, cucumber and parsley leaves.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the carrot until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the water and chicken-style stock powder, then bring to the boil. Add the couscous, stir to combine, then cover with a lid and remove from the heat. Set aside until the water has absorbed, 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork.
Cut the chicken breast into 1cm strips. In a large bowl, combine a drizzle of water and the Aussie spice blend. Add the chicken and toss to coat.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. Cook the chicken strips in batches, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. TIP: The chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside.
While the chicken is cooking, combine the Greek-style yoghurt and dill & parsley mayonnaise in a small bowl. Season to taste and set aside. In a second large bowl, combine the carrot couscous, tomato, cucumber and 1/2 the parsley. Season to taste. TIP: Add the veggies to the couscous in the saucepan to save on washing up!
Divide the carrot couscous between plates and top with the golden chicken strips. Garnish with the remaining parsley and spoon over the dill-parsley yoghurt.
