1 (5.6-ounce) package toasted pine nuts couscous mix
3 cups chopped cooked chicken (about 1 rotisserie chicken)

1 (4-ounce) package crumbled feta cheese
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
What To Do:
- Heat broth and seasoning packet from couscous in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave at HIGH for 3 to 5 minutes or until broth begins to boil. Place couscous in a large bowl, and stir in broth mixture. Cover and let stand 5 minutes.
