Yield: 6 servings

Chicken:

Ingredients:

  • 6 boneless, skinless, chicken breast halves
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) Italian-style stewed tomatoes with juice
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped, unpeeled, seeded zucchini
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup honey

Instructions:

Rinse the chicken and pat it dry; set aside. In a large Dutch oven, mix all of the ingredients except the chicken; stir to blend, and add the chicken. Turn to coat. Cover and cook for 45 minutes over medium-low heat, until the chicken is tender.

Couscous:

Ingredients:

To serve, spoon the couscous onto a serving platter, arrange the chicken on top, and pour the sauce from the Dutch oven over the chicken. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.
