Chicken and Couscous

This dinner takes a bit longer but makes a good portion, great for taking as a lunch later in the week!

Prep time: 20 minutes plus 20 minutes marinating time - Cooking time 10 minutes - 4 servings

1/2 c orange juice
2 T honey
2 T soy sauce
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 lb chicken cut into 1 1/2 in peices
2 T olive oil

1 c chicken broth
1/2 c orange juice
1 scallion (green onion)
1 T olive oil
1/2 t salt
1 c uncooked couscous

In a large bowl, combine the orange juice, honey, soy sauce, and garlic. Stir in the chicken until well mixed. Marinate at room temperature for 20 - 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours.

Prepare the couscous. In a medium sauce pan, combine the chicken broth, orange juice, scallion oil and salt.

Heat the broth mixture to a boil over medium heat. Stir in the couscous. Cover the pan, remove the pan from the heat and set aside for at least 5 minutes

Meanwhile, pour 2 T of olive oil into small frying pan. Add chicken to pan, without marinade. Stir fry quickly for 5 - 7 minutes or until chicken is opaque in center

Serve chicken over couscous and enjoy!
