Betty Crocker's Heart Healthy Cookbook shares a recipe! Serve couscous pilaf topped with chicken and drizzled with orange juice mixture that’s ready in just 30 minutes – perfect for a dinner.
cup Green Giant™ frozen sweet peas (from 9 oz box)
teaspoon ground ginger
cup uncooked couscous
tablespoons orange juice
tablespoon apricot preserves or honey
teaspoon spicy brown mustard
boneless skinless chicken breast halves
Place peas, water, salt and ginger in 1-quart saucepan. Heat to boiling over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in couscous. Cover; let stand 5 minutes.
Set oven control to broil. Mix orange juice, preserves and mustard in small bowl. Pour half of mixture (about 2 tablespoons) into another small dish; reserve for topping.
Place chicken on rack in broiler pan; brush with about half of remaining orange juice glaze.
Broil with tops about 4 inches from heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning and brushing with glaze after 5 minutes, until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. Discard any remaining glaze.
Stir pilaf lightly with fork; divide evenly onto plates. Top with chicken; drizzle with reserved orange juice mixture.
“I’m such a chicken fan, and this is definitely a balanced meal, delicious and easy.” Marilyn B.
