Lemon chicken, an easy summertime dinner from the grill, becomes a bit more interesting when served atop a bed of almond couscous.
The nice thing about couscous, which is eaten by just about everyone in North Africa and the Middle East, is that it can be prepared in minutes. Add some fruit, nuts or herbs, and it becomes a delicious side dish.
Thick chicken breasts will grill quicker if you cut them in half horizontally first. To make a prettier plate, grill the lemons after you’ve removed the zest, then use them to garnish the serving plates.
