1 10-ounce box couscous
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 large clove garlic, thinly sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons light brown sugar
Pinch ground nutmeg
1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup orange juice
1 15-ounce can diced peaches or peach slices, drained
1 rotisserie chicken, cut into pieces
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves (optional)


Cook the couscous according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Add the sugar, nutmeg, vinegar, and orange juice and bring to a simmer. Add the peaches and continue to simmer until the liquid has reduced slightly, about 5 minutes.

Divide the couscous and chicken among individual bowls, top with the peach sauce, and sprinkle with the parsley (if using).
