1/2 lb. boneless chicken, cut into strips
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. apricot preserves
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup finely chopped dried apricots
1/2 cup uncooked couscous


Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat, add chicken and cook for about 4 minutes or until just done. Don't overcook, you don't want chewy chicken. Combine preserves and vinegar in a bowl, then add the cooked chicken. Add the broth to the pan, scraping up the good stuff on the bottom, add the apricots. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover, simmer 2 minutes. Stir in couscous, top with chicken mixture. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork, and serve.

Working late? You can make this faster than it would take to go out and get take-out. And it's delicious. This one is for 2, but can very easily be doubled.

* To finely chop the apricots, spray kitchen shears with non stick spray, and snip them into small pieces.
