Orange Couscous Chicken

Serves 2-3

2 boneless skinless chicken breast

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup couscous

1 cucumber

1 tbsp. red wine vinegar

3 tbsp. olive oil (separated)

1/4 cup orange marmalade

2 tbsp. orange juice

Heat one tablespoon of oil in a pan on medium high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides and saute until lightly browned and cooked all the way through. 

While the chicken is cooking, cook the couscous according to the package directions and spread on plate to cool. Cut the cucumbers in small cubes (seed if you would like) and mix in with the cooled couscous, 1 tablespoon of oil and the red wine vinegar.

Mix the marmalade, orange juice and the remaining tablespoon of oil together, spoon over the chicken before serving.

This is such a great summer meal. I cook everything in advance either in the morning or a few days before and put it all in the refrigerator so it is nice and chilled for dinner. I like to serve the chicken sliced on top of the couscous and drizzle the amazing orange marmalade sauce on top and mix it all together!!! Its great leftover too.
