  • 1
    Heat grill. Cook couscous in water as directed on package. In medium bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except chicken; mix well.
  • 2
    Cut four 18x12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil. Place 1 chicken breast half in center of each piece of foil. Top each with 1/4 of vegetable mixture. Wrap each packet securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.
  • 3
    When ready to grill, place packets, seam side up, on gas grill over medium-high heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium-high coals. Cook 13 to 15 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear. Open packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Serve chicken and vegetables over couscous.

Expert Tips

  • Use 2/3 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice and 1 1/3 cups water in place of the couscous and 2 cups of water. Use 1/4 cup sliced ripe olives in place of kalamata olives.
  • When cooking couscous, white rice, brown rice or rice from a mix to serve with these packets, time your preparation so it's ready when the chicken is.
  • Don't let rain spoil your dinner plans. If you can't grill these packets, try baking them. Heat the oven to 350°F. and assemble the packets as directed. Arrange them on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350°F. for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink.
