One of the easiest meals to make when I'm in a hurry and want something fast and flavorful is Mediterranean Chicken Couscous.

This recipe was developed by my cousin, Rami, and appeared in the Healthy Living section of Southern Living, July 2006. Rami initially created the dish as an affordable way to feed a large group of friends (doubling the recipe yields 16 cups) using some of her favorite ingredients like feta, basil, and tomatoes. She kept with the Mediterranean theme adding couscous, and then chopped cooked chicken to make it a main-dish meal. The result was a tasty one-dish dinner that takes only a few minutes to throw together.

Once I tried the recipe--I was hooked! What I love the most is that it holds well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Plus, it taste just as good cold as it does hot. You've got to give this recipe a try and let me know if you agree.
