Chicken and Couscous

25 Min

How 'bout giving a today twist to Middle Eastern couscous tossed with chicken and vegetables? Chicken and Couscous brings together a bunch of cultures around your table.

What You'll Need

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken breast halves (1 to 1 ½ pounds), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium-sized red bell pepper, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (10-ounce) package couscous

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and cook garlic 1 minute. Add chicken, red pepper, and onion. Saute 8 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add chicken broth, water, parsley, cumin, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil and stir in couscous.
  3. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Serve immediately.


If you have any of this left over, simply reheat it in the microwave or in a skillet with a little more water or chicken broth.
