VARIATIONS: To make Asian Chicken or Tuscan Chicken, prepare recipe as directed, except:
  • For Asian Chicken, substitute 1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger for rosemary and 2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce for lemon juice. Serve with hot cooked jasmine rice instead of couscous, and garnish with toasted slivered almonds, if desired. (Cook rice according to package directions using College Inn® Chicken Broth in place of water.)
  • For Tuscan Chicken, substitute 1 tsp. dried basil and 1/2 tsp. dried oregano for rosemary. Serve with hot cooked pasta instead of couscous, and garnish with fresh basil and shaved Parmesan cheese, if desired.
NOTE: If chicken breasts are very large, slice two chicken breasts in half horizontally to about 1/2-inch thick.
