Boil a kettle of water. In a medium bowl, combine the couscous, currants and the salt. Add 3/4 cup boiling water and stir to combine. Immediately cover with a plate and leave for 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork and set aside, uncovered.


Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chicken tenderloins and chermoula spice blend and season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat.


While the chicken is cooking, roughly chop the cucumber, tomato and mint. When you're ready to pack your lunch, stir the cucumber, tomato and mint through the couscous. Season. Divide the couscous and tahini between two microwavable containers and top with the chermoula chicken.


At lunch, remove the chicken from the couscous and heat in the microwave until piping hot, 1-2 minutes. Top the couscous with the chicken to serve.
