Instructions

Prep
1
  • Peel, then cut half the onion into 1/4-inch pieces (whole onion for 4 ppl).
  • Drain olives over a small bowl, reserving brine. (NOTE: You will use olive brine in step 4 to make sauce.) Halve olives.
  • Cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch pieces.
Prep chicken
2
  • Heat a medium non-stick pan (large pan for 4 ppl) over medium-high heat.
  • While the pan heats, pat chicken dry with paper towels, then cut each piece in half, crosswise.
  • Add chicken, Mediterranean Spice Blend and 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a medium bowl. (TIP: We love to use olive oil in this recipe!) Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat.
Sear chicken
3
  • When the pan is hot, add chicken. Sear until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. (NOTE: Chicken will finish cooking in step 4.)
  • Transfer chicken to a plate. Set aside.
Braise chicken
4
  • Reheat the same pan over medium. Add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions. Cook, stirring often, until tender, 2-3 min.
  • Add tomatoes, olives, olive brine and 1/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl). Bring to a simmer.
  • Once simmering, add chicken back to the pan. Cover and simmer until veggies soften and chicken is cooked through, 6-8 min.**
Cook couscous
5
  • Meanwhile, add raisins, broth concentrate, 2/3 cup water, 1 tbsp butter and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl all for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Once boiling, remove the pot from heat, then add couscous. Stir to combine.
  • Cover and let stand for 5 min.
  • When couscous is tender, fluff with a fork.
Finish and serve
6
  • Divide couscous between bowls.
  • Top with chicken and veggies and any remaining braising liquid in the pan.
