  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper then rub the za'atar spice on both sides.
  • Heat up half the oil in a large sauté pan and sear chicken well, approximately 4-5 minutes per side until browned on each side.
  • Transfer chicken breasts to oven-proof pan and keep warm. Do not allow the meat to dry out.
  • Return the skillet to the stove top and add the wine to deglaze; boil 1 minute.
  • Add the chicken stock and return to boil.
  • Immediately add the couscous. Cover skillet tightly and remove from heat.
  • Keep skillet covered 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl combine the reserved 2 tablespoons olive oil, orange juice, zest, cumin and cilantro.

  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, if necessary.
  • Transfer the couscous to a platter and place the chicken breasts on top.
