This is one of my Healthy January recipes! Chicken, browned in olive oil, dried apricots and prunes, and couscous. What a flavor-filled meal! This was the second course to my Orange, Onion and Olive Salad.
Mediterranean Chicken and Fruit
- olive oil
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup dried apricots
- 1 cup dried prunes
- 15 ounces chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 cup couscous
Cut each chicken breast into two or three pieces. Place each piece in a ziploc bag. Pound with a mallet until thin. In a large skillet over medium high heat drizzle a little olive oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and add to the skillet. Cook until browned on both sides – about ten minutes. In a large measuring cup whisk the chicken broth, cinnamon and cumin. Pour over the chicken. Add the dried fruits. Allow to cook for a few minutes. Add the cup of couscous to the skillet. Stir well. Remove from heat and cover. Let sit five minutes. Enjoy!
