Pieces of cooked fatless chicken with olive oil, lemon juice or vinegar, vegetables and sometimes basil and a little garlic bring into your kitchen the flavour of mediterranean foods and constitute a filling and very healthy combination.

Here are some South Beach Diet chicken recipe suggestions:

Lemon Couscous Chicken — Phase 2

  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 c broccoli florets
  • 1 pkg Near East Roasted Garlic & Olive Oil Couscous mix
  • 1½ c chopped cooked chicken
  • juice of 1 lemon (about 3 tbs)
  • ¼ tsp lemon peel

In a large skillet, bring the water, oil, broccoli, and contents of the spice sack from the couscous mix to a boil. Stir in the couscous, chicken, lemon juice, and lemon peel.
