Fire up the grill, and transport your family to Morocco for a spicy, healthful meal you'll make again and again.

Ingredients

Marinated Chicken

4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 oz each)
1
cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1/2
teaspoon pepper

Herbed Couscous

1
cup Progresso™ reduced-sodium chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1
cup water
1
box (7.6 oz) uncooked whole wheat couscous (1 1/4 cups)
2
teaspoons olive oil
1/2
cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1/2
cup chopped fresh cilantro

Harissa Drizzle

2
tablespoons spicy harissa
2
tablespoons lemon juice
1
clove garlic, finely chopped

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, mix together Marinated Chicken ingredients, tossing to thoroughly coat chicken. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 12 hours.
  • 2 Meanwhile, spray gas or charcoal grill grate with grill spray. Heat grill.
  • 3 In 4-quart saucepan, heat chicken broth and water to boiling over medium-high heat. Add remaining Herbed Couscous ingredients; stir, and heat to simmering. Cover; turn off heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff couscous, then transfer to large bowl, and set aside to cool.
  • 4 Mix Harissa Drizzle ingredients; set aside.
  • 5 Transfer chicken to clean plate, letting excess marinade drip back into bowl. Discard marinade. Place chicken on grill, top side down. Cover grill; cook 5 minutes, then turn 90 degrees and cook 2 to 3 more minutes, until char marks form. Turn chicken over, and continue to cook 3 to 4 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of chicken reads 165° F.
  • 6 Transfer to serving platter; cover with foil, and allow to rest 5 minutes before serving.
  • 7 Add olive oil and herbs to couscous and toss to coat. Divide couscous evenly between 4 serving plates; top with chicken and Harissa drizzle.
Tips  

Jazz up the couscous by stirring a teaspoon of the North African spice blend called ras el hanout into the chicken broth and water mixture before adding the couscous.

Harissa is a Middle Eastern condiment that adds spice and fabulous flavor. This recipe calls for spicy harissa, but if you prefer things more on mild side, choose a variety that says mild on the label.
