Spicy Orange Chicken With Cucumber Couscous

José Picayo

Serves 4

Hands-On Time: 20m

Total Time: 25m



Ingredients



1 cup couscous

4 tablespoons olive oil

4 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts

kosher salt and black pepper

1/2 English cucumber, chopped

1/4 cup chopped dried cherries

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1/4 cup orange marmalade

2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper



Directions



1. Cook the couscous according to the package directions. Spread on a plate and let cool.



2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the chicken with ¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper and cook until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes per side.



3. Transfer the couscous to a medium bowl and gently toss with the cucumber, cherries, parsley, vinegar, 2 tablespoons of the remaining oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper.



4. In a small bowl, whisk together the marmalade, orange juice, crushed red pepper, the remaining tablespoon of oil, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Serve the chicken with the couscous salad and drizzle with the marmalade sauce.



Tip



The couscous salad and orange sauce can be made up to 1 day in advance. Refrigerate, covered; bring to room temperature before serving.
