Makes 4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half, 2/3 cup couscous)

Grill this chicken then give it an appetizing upgrade by pairing it with a perfectly flavored lemon and olive mixture. It's the perfect dish for summer!

Not all grilled chicken has to have limited flavor. This lemon-olive flavoring gives the chicken a burst of flavor. For a low-sodium alternative, boil the couscous in water instead of chicken broth.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

Coat grill with cooking spray. Place chicken on grill. Cook 5 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. Combine 1 teaspoon lemon rind with mustard; brush over chicken.

Step 3

Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in the couscous. Remove from heat; cover, let stand 5 minutes.

Step 4

In a bowl, combine remaining lemon rind, olives, and remaining ingredients. Stir couscous into olive mixture. Spoon onto 4 plates; top with chicken.

Step 5

Wine note: With its rustic spiciness and zingy acidity, no other grape goes better with olives than sangiovese, the grape in Italian Chianti. So look for a good Chianti such as Da Vinci (around $16).
