Colorful Couscous Salad with Chicken

This exotic salad is a delicious way to experience couscous. Couscous is made from refined durum wheat and looks like tiny grains. It is often used in North African cuisine. If you don't eat every last morsel, try the leftovers cold for lunch the next day.


  • 1 cup couscous
  • 2 cups Wild Oats Organic Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 teaspoons Wild Oats Organic Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin, divided
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 organic green bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 organic red bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 organic yellow bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • 4 organic green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh black olives, pitted, for garnish


Prepare couscous following package directions, using chicken broth for liquid. Drain and set aside.

Combine wine, olive oil, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 teaspoon cumin and garlic together in a large skillet. Add chicken, then simmer over low heat until the liquid has evaporated and chicken juices run clear, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Transfer cooked chicken to a large bowl and add remaining tablespoon lime juice and 1/2 teaspoon cumin, bell peppers, green onions and couscous. Toss mixture well, and garnish each serving with a few black olives.
