Ok I made this for the Spring 2009 PAC. I was not sure what to expect from this, since I have never cooked any food like this before. I am more of a throw it in a pan and let it go. This was all about presentation. With that I have to admit that it was extremely easy to make. I had no problems except finding the Couscous. I could not find the Parmesan kind, so I just got some Parmesan cheese and put in with it while it cooked. Well, when it was done, I plated as directed and it was very lovely! It looked very good and extremely appetizing. Looked like I slaved over the kitchen. Not so... LOL The taste was awesome. You have to make sure you get a little of everything in at least the first bite. The mix of them just sets the whole dish off. I will have to say, this is something that I will have to keep stashed away for those special moments when I definitely want to impress someone. True Kudos on this one!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season chicken with salt, pepper and oregano, to taste. Add 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil to pan - when heated, add chicken cutlets and cook until browned and cooked thoroughly. Remove from pan.
  2. While pan is hot, add more olive oil if needed. When oil is warmed, add the crushed garlic and diced onions. Cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat. When onions are just about translucent, add the can of diced tomatoes (undrained) and stir continuously. Cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  3. While you are cooking your onions, prepare couscous as directed on the box (I prefer Near East brand in the rice aisle).
  4. When tomato mixture and couscous are done, plate your dish. Place couscous on serving dish. Place the chicken cutlets over couscous and top with tomato, onion mixture. It's a beautiful dish that can be garnished with fresh oregano or parsley.
