Mediterranean Chicken Couscous

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by JeriBinNC

From January 2006 Southern Living. We had this for dinner last night. At first taste, I thought it was just okay; by the time I got it to the table, though, it tasted really good. I had the leftovers cold for lunch today, and it was just as good as last night. I used about 2 oz of feta, and I used a deli-roasted chicken.

I love making this dish in the summer when I have fresh cherry tomatoes and basil out of my garden. For a really quick dinner I have used canned chicken meat. It is of course better with a fresh chicken breast or leftover chicken from the crock pot. This amount gets eaten quickly, so I will often double so we'll hve leftovers. It goes perfectly in your lunch box!
