Chicken Piccata With Couscous


1 3/4 cups water, divided

1 (5.6-ounce) box toasted pine nut couscous

5 tablespoons butter, divided

1 tablespoon flour

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

large zip-top bag

4 chicken breast cutlets (about 1 lb)

1 tablespoon capers

1/2 lemon (for juice, rinsed)


1. Place in medium saucepan, 1 1/2 cups of the water, contents of spice packet (from couscous), and 2 tablespoons of the butter; bring to a boil on high for couscous.

2. Place flour and seasoned salt in zip-top bag; shake to mix. Add chicken (wash hands); seal tightly and shake to coat. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of the butter; swirl to coat. Add chicken (wash hands); cook 5 minutes, without turning, or until golden.

3. Meanwhile, stir couscous into boiling water; cover, remove from heat, and set aside.

4. Turn chicken. Stir in capers, juice of one-half lemon (about 1 tablespoon), remaining 1 tablespoon butter, and remaining 1/4 cup water. Cook 2-3 minutes or until sauce begins to thicken and internal temperature of chicken reaches 165°F. Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure doneness. Fluff couscous with fork and serve.
