Oven Fried Chicken and Couscous

Oven Fried Chicken and Couscous via LashesandDashesFor Dinner last night I made Semi Healthy Oven Fried Chicken and Israeli Couscous. It is a flavorful dish that can be modified to your needs and taste.

Israeli Couscous is one of my favorite grains to make and eat, a quick side dish with wonderful flavor!

The below recipe serves three with left overs.

I started on the Chicken so it would have a head start on the couscous.

Oven Fried Chicken

3 boneless, skinless chicken breast rinsed and put on a plate with paper towel

Just over 1/2 cups of flour

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

1/4 cup of melted butter

A dash of salt

A pinch of white pepper

A pinch of salt

1 TBL of Italian seasoning

A pinch of parsley flakes.

Pre-heat oven to 400. Melt the butter in a dish large enough to put the chicken in, then put all of the dry ingredients in a Ziploc bag. Spray your pan with Pam. After you have mixed your dry ingredients in the Ziploc bag. Dip one piece of chicken at a time into the butter, then place chicken into Ziploc bag and shake the bag until the chicken is fully coated in mixture, then place in pan. Repeat with remaining chicken. Once done place pan with chicken in oven and set timer for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes flip chicken and cook for 20 minutes more.

Israeli Couscous

1 cup Israeli couscous

1 TBL Olive oil

1 1/4 cup of liquid, I used chicken broth

Use a 2 quart pan to heat the Olive oil over a med-high flame, once oil is hot place Couscous into pan to brown for 5 minutes. I personally brown the couscous for 7 minutes, the longer you brown it the better the flavor, just becareful to not burn the couscous. Once the couscous is browned carefully add the liquid to the pan, then turn the flame to low. We want to the couscous to simmer for 10 minutes.  Stir once to make sure the couscous is not sticking to the sides of the pan. The couscous when done should be plump and soft but not mushy.
