Citrus Chicken with Tabbouleh Couscous

Just kidding about the “tho” – I had to throw it out there because I’m so sick of seeing it every.where. Can’t we just speak like normal people?? I guess in this case, write like normal people. I didn’t realize that “though” was such a long and cumbersome word to write (or type). I guess someone put us out of our misery and knocked off the last three letters.

A better question is “tho what?”.

Ok, let’s get back to the chicken.

I marinated boneless, skinless chicken breasts in Stubbs Citrus Onion Marinade. This stuff is insane. Do yourself a favor and go out and get some.

I don’t like flavorless chicken like my husband does (sorry, Mark), but if he can dip it in ketchup he’s happy. I need for it to taste good, if not awesome. And tender.

Nobody likes tough ass chicken.



After about an hour of marinating, this chicken was perfect after cooking. I made couscous tabbouleh style – with fresh parsley, lemon, garlic, tomatoes, onions and feta cheese. That stuff alone is crack-like. You can also make it ahead of time and serve it cold. I like it either way, and it makes a great dip with pita chips.

Here’s your printable-

Citrus Chicken with Tabbouleh Couscous


  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Stubbs Citrus and Onion Sauce
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 bunch Italian leaf parsley, chopped
  • 4 oz feta cheese
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Pour marinade over chicken in a gallon size zip lock bag and refrigerate. Marinate for an hour, turning halfway through.
  • Bring 2 cups chicken stock to a boil - add couscous, remove from heat and cover.
  • Heat canola oil over medium heat and add marinated chicken and cook for about 3-5 minutes each side, until done, brushing with the leftover marinade halfway through.
  • While chicken is cooking, combine couscous with oil, tomato, onion, olives, parsley, feta cheese, olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper.
  • Serve chicken over couscous.

    Though this recipe looks like the shit, I’m nowhere close to cooking like this in the Jimmy Rockford. Still, Shea.. This looks fucking delicious.
