Chicken with Apple, Raisins and Olives

The cinnamon and apples in this recipe originally made me a bit wary. It seemed like it was going to be a bit too sweet, but I decided to give it a try anyway. I am so glad that I did! The flavors were great and this really did go well with the couscous. Which reminds me, I really need to make couscous more often. It's super delicious and very easy to make for a side! Give this a try!

Chicken with Apples, Raisins and Olive-adapted from Every Day with Rachael Ray
Total Time: 30 Minutes
Serves 2

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
  • Seasoned salt and pepper
  • 1 large gala apple, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup green olives
  • 1 box garlic and olive oil couscous
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with the seasoned salt and pepper, add to the pan and cook until golden-brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and keep warm.

Add the apples, raisins and cinnamon to the skillet with 1/3 cup water and scrape up the browned bits and season with a bit more salt and pepper. Cover and cook over medium heat until the apple is tender, about 5 minutes. Add back in chicken and stir in olives and remove from heat.

Meanwhile, prepare the couscous according to package directions. Once cooked, serve with chicken mixture.
