Tasty Tuesday!

Generally, I don't post recipes off a box. Ok, generally, I don't make recipes off a box. This past week, I made this recipe for a party I was hosting, and we were all so surprised by how absolutely yummy it was. Of course, we did alter what we made slightly from the official recipe - it wouldn't be me if I didn't make it my own a little bit!

Mediterrean Cous Cous

Ingredients:
1 T olive oil
2 large chicken breasts
2 cloves garlic
1 1/2 c chicken stock
2 T white wine (and yes, I did initially type "whine" - it's been one of those days)
1 package Near East Parmesan flavored cous cous
1/3 c feta cheese
1 pint grape tomatoes
1/2 c parsley

Directions:
Trim the chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces. Mince the garlic (don't use the bottled stuff, please!) Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and stir to separate. After a minute, add the garlic. Sautee until the chicken is cooked through, about 6 minutes or so.

Pull out the chicken and garlic, and set aside for the moment. Add the broth, wine, and spice packet from the cous cous. Bring it to a boil, then add the cous cous and the chicken/garlic.

Remove from the heat and cover. Let it stand for five minutes while you cut the grape tomatoes in half and chop the parsley. Once the cous cous is done, gently stir it and sprinkle the top with the feta, tomatoes and parsley.


Enjoy, and YUM! Look for this and more with Tempt My Tummy Tuesday and Blessed With Grace!

I wonder if my picky hubby would eat this? I'll give it a try. Looks good!

Kelly - I had a couple friends who had the same question about their hubby. Their end decision? More for them as leftovers if their hubbies didn't like it! :)
