Today I tried a new recipe that a friend gave me. I never really thought of grilling fruit with chicken but hey, I'll try anything once. Well, I loved it so much that I want to eat it again for dinner tomorrow.

chicken and fruit recipe with couscous salad

This is so simple and made with no fuss at all. I added a salad on the side to get my greens!

Here's the recipe if you'd like to try it too.

  • Sprinkle a chicken breast (or however many you want to serve) with oregano, thyme, salt and pepper, on both sides.
  • Grill in the oven for 10 minutes on both sides. 
  • Drizzle a little white wine over the chicken and top with fresh pineapple, peaches and cherries.
  • Grill for 10 more minutes and you're done.

While it was cooking, I made a couscous salad to have with it.

To make a serving for 4, I use:

  • 1 cup of couscous
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken stock or water
  • 2 tbls lemon or lime juice (preferrably fresh)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Then add any of the following or combine several:

  • finely diced red onion
  • parsley
  • raisins
  • chick peas
  • red bell pepper
  • grated carrot
  • garlic

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
