Lemon Mint Chicken


Fresh herbs are such a great way to add natural and vibrant flavors to a meal without the calories. While it may be difficult to keep fresh herbs on hand, it is so worth it to gain that real and deep flavor in your meals. In this dish, mint is the star. Lemon and butter add some fresh and savory accompanying tastes, while couscous acts as a sponge to soak in the lemony-buttery-minty juices that run off the barely crispy pieces of chicken.

Yield: 3 servings
Total Time: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS: 

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup margarine
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1 cup couscous, cooked according to package directions

DIRECTIONS:

In a medium bowl, mix together chicken pieces and garlic. Toss with flour to coat and shake off excess. 

Heat the margarine in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken pieces. Cook and stir until browned. Add the mint leaves and lemon juice, cover and steam for about five minutes until chicken is just cooked through, being careful not to overcook. 

Serve with cooked couscous and enjoy!
