lemon grilled chicken & couscous

this recipe originated from here. this is part of an awesome series called "dinner & a movie" by From Me to You. i absolutely LOVE these recipes. they have become favorites. on the original website there's also a recipe for pita bread and hummus. i served the two dishes below with a salad of baby spinach and mediterranean feta crumbles. delightful.

lemon grilled chicken
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts pounded to 1/4 inch thick
3 garlic cloves, crushed
juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 c. fresh chopped parsley
salt/pepper to paste

1. pound out chicken to 1/4 inch thick, season with salt and pepper to taste
2. combine lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, & garlic in a bowl
3. dredge chicken and let set in marinade in the fridge for an hour (i did it the night before...caution, if you marinade it that long it's really lemon-y, which i liked but you might not)
4. grill

1 cup israeli couscous
1 nectarine, peeled and chopped
handful of dried cranberries

1. bring 4 cups of water to a boil
2. add couscous and fruit
3. simmer 8 minutes and drain
Pin It!
