Skillet Chicken with Couscous

Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes



In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over high heat. When the oil is hot add chicken and cook, turning, until browned on both sides, about 10 to 12 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook chicken for 10 minutes. Remove chicken to a dish and drain off the excess fat and liquids from pan. Add onion, carrots, and celery to skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until onion is softened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic, chicken broth, couscous, garbanzo beans, lemon juice, and pepper. Heat to boiling, then reduce heat to medium-low. Place chicken on top of couscous mixture. Cover and cook 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is very tender and cooked through.
