Lemon Garlic Grilled Chicken over Pearl Couscous

Serves 2 to 3 



  1. In a bag or container add your chicken breast, 4 minced garlic, juice of 1 lemon, salt, pepper, and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Let it marinate for 20 minutes.
  2. In a medium to large pan over medium heat add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the couscous. Cook until lightly golden brown, constantly stir so it does not burn (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add 2 cups of water or vegetable broth to the couscous, lower the heat to a simmer and cover with a lid. Check and stir the couscous every 2 minutes until all the water is absorbed (about 10 minutes). If the couscous is still too hard add another 2 tablespoons of liquid. Cover with the lid and let it steam with the heat off.
  4. Turn the barbecue on to a medium heat. Barbecue the chicken on both sides until thoroughly cooked all the way through. About 15 to 20 minutes depending on how hot your barbecue runs.
  5. In a small pan add, 4 minced garlic, 1/2 stick of butter, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and juice of 2 lemons. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add the butter mixture to a pouring dish with chopped fresh parsley.
  6. Add your couscous, barbecued chicken, and top with your lemon garlic butter sauce. Enjoy!
