This chicken tho…
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.
Want some variations?
- Pork instead of chicken
- Quinoa instead of couscous
- Tofu or meatless chicken, like Morning Star, instead of chicken
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.

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.
