  1. Combine the oil, oregano, allspice, cumin, cloves, and garlic in a large bowl. Add the chicken breasts and cover with the olive oil mixture. Cook on a preheated grill over medium heat for about 30 minutes or until the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced. Remove from the grill and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the couscous according to package directions. When the couscous is ready, divide it among 4 plates. Thinly slice each chicken breast and fan over the couscous on each plate. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the sauce over each chicken breast.

This recipe is a real keeper. It is spicy though and has an exotic taste, so beware if you like a more basic chicken. I cooked it on my george foreman grill and I loved the pimento sauce on the side!

We didn't think this was very exciting. It was just another way of grilling chicken...not bad though.

I doubled this and marinated the chicken breasts for about an hour. Great served with couscous and the Lentils and Tomatoes recipe.

This recipe is a favorite in my house. I make it at least once a week. We're not on the South Beach diet so I make it with couscous, homemade flat breads and tzajiki sauce. Definitely good!

GREAT, easy recipe! Used my foreman grill and it worked like a champ. Hint: make extra olive oil mixture and use on grilled onions with honey and golden raisins. also add honey to the cous cous for complementary flavors to the spice. mmm, mmm!!
