Ingredients
12
ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-size strips
1/2
of a medium onion, thinly sliced
1
tablespoon lemon juice
1
teaspoon paprika
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon ground ginger
1/2
teaspoon ground cumin
1/4
teaspoon sugar
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
2
1
tablespoon olive oil
1/2
cup green olives, pitted and halved
2/3
cup whole wheat couscous
1/4
cup dried apricots, halved
1/4
cup raisins
2
tablespoons red wine vinegar
1
tablespoon olive oil
1
tablespoon slivered almonds
1
teaspoon olive oil
1
pound fresh green beans, trimmed
1/4
cup orange juice
1/4
cup sliced almonds, toasted
3
cups plain or flavored fat-free Greek yogurt

Directions

  1. In a large bowl toss together chicken, onion, lemon juice, paprika, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, the ginger, cumin, sugar, pepper, cinnamon, and garlic. In a large nonstick skillet heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken mixture; stir-fry until chicken is cooked through and onion is lightly browned. Stir in olives; heat through.
  2. Meanwhile, for couscous, prepare couscous according to package directions, adding apricots and raisins for the last 5 minutes of cooking. Stir vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil into couscous just before serving. Sprinkle each serving with 1/2 teaspoon of the slivered almonds.
  3. For beans, in a 12-inch skillet heat the 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat. Add beans, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the orange peel; toss to coat. Add orange juice. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cook, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Sprinkle with sliced almonds just before serving. Serve with yogurt.
