Dinner ready in 30 minutes! Enjoy grilled chicken breasts and veggies served over couscous. Perfect for Mediterranean cuisine!

1 1/2
cups uncooked couscous
2
cups water
1
(14-oz.) can artichoke hearts, drained, cut in half
1/2
cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained, coarsely chopped
1/4
cup sliced pitted kalamata olives
1
tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1
tablespoon olive oil
1
tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4
teaspoon pepper
2
garlic cloves, minced
4
boneless skinless chicken breast halves

Steps

  • 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.
