Instructions Checklist
  • So that everything is ready at the same time, start the couscous while the chicken is simmering; then keep the couscous covered until ready to serve.

  • In a large (10-inch) skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add garlic; cook until starting to soften, about 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, ginger, teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, half the cilantro, and 2 tablespoons water.

  • Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated but is still somewhat saucy, 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Stir in honey; add chicken and zucchini. Return to a simmer; cover. Cook, turning once, until chicken is cooked through and zucchini is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in remaining cilantro. Serve over couscous.

This is an awesome recipe. You can sub fresh cilantro for dried, I also double the zuchini amount. The presentation is also beautiful so it would work for a dinner party. Yummy!! 5 starts!!!

This has become one of my standbys. I like it for myself but it is easy to multiply for company. It is tasty, and slightly unusual. I use canned tomatoes, frozen chicken, and just have to remember to pick up fresh zucchini and cilantro.

I made this last night with Salmon on bed on white rice. Hubby loved it. Great flavor with a slight honey taste. Next time I'll try with Couscous. This is a quick meal with wonderful results.
