1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 cup couscous

Combine salsa ingredients; cover and refrigerate until serving. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine lime juice, oil, lime peel, salt and pepper; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2-4 hours. Drain and discard marinade. Place chicken in broiler pan. Broil 3 in. from heat for 5-6 minutes on each side. Cook couscous according to package directions. Serve chicken over couscous and pass salsa. Enjoy!

This was a new recipe I tried tonight and it actually went over very well with my family. I had been a little worried since it is quite a bit different from our usual fare. My husband, especially enjoyed it.
