Anyone who knows me personally also knows that I am a huge chicken fan. I love how versatile it is; you can fry it, you can roast it, bake it, make soup with it, but best of all - you can grill it!
This easy recipe adds a little spicy kick to grilled chicken. Add steamed vegetables to the couscous for an extra healthy addition.
Spice Grilled Chicken with Couscous
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken halves
- 1 tsp paprika
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 3/4 cup couscous
- 3/4 pound cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/2 cup torn basil
- 1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
- 2 T fresh lemon juice
- 1 T olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, pound chicken until about 1/2" thick. Season with paprika, cumin, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Grill about 3 minutes per side, until internal temperature reaches 150 degrees. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil for 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring broth to a boil and add couscous. Remove from heat and cover for 5 minutes. Stir in lemon zest and juice, 2 T of olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Spoon to bottom of serving dish, scatter tomatoes and basil on top.
