COUSCOUS WITH CHICKEN & SALSAcouscous chicken & salsa

Servings: 4

• 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, seasoned
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
• 2 cups fat-free chicken broth
• 1 1/2 cups couscous
• 1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced (2 cups)
• 1 yellow bell pepper, cut in bite-size pieces
• 1 cup thick and chunky salsa, heated
• 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese mixture
• 3/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
• 1/4 cup chopped green onions
Season chicken breasts as desired with salt, pepper, garlic salt, taco seasoning, etc.. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet; cook chicken over medium high heat, turning occasionally until browned and meat is cooked through (10 to 15 minutes, depending on thickness of meat). Remove chicken from skillet; cut into 1/2-inch strips; keep warm.

In medium saucepan, bring broth to a boil; stir in couscous. Remove from heat and cover. Let stand 5 minutes.

In the same skillet place zucchini and yellow pepper; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until tender yet crisp, about 5 minutes.

Fluff couscous with a fork and place on large platter. Drizzle with 1/2 of salsa. Top with zucchini and peppers, then chicken. Sprinkle with cheese. Drizzle with remaining salsa. Top with dollops of sour cream and green onions.
