Directions

  1. Grate the zest and squeeze the juice from the lemon. Stir the stock, tomatoes, lemon juice and lemon zest in a small bowl.
  2. Season the chicken with the salt and black pepper.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium. Heat the remaining oil in the skillet. Add the shallots and garlic and cook and stir for 1 minute.
  5. Add the stock mixture to the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Return the chicken to the skillet. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with the olives, capers, basil and cheese. Serve with the couscous.

Footnotes

  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer--just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.

I will cut back on the lemon juice but the flavors with a spinach side salad and a glass of red wine were delicious. I used rice instead of couscous and put that on the bottom of the dish with the chicken on top. This one's a keeper. Excellent meal!

This "Pan-Seared Mediterranean Chicken" is absolutely wonderful. I used goat cheese instead of feta.
