My recipe this week is a very yummy one that my family LOVED and enjoyed very much! I am hoping that you will enjoy it as much as we did...

Greek Garlic Chicken

What you need:
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
3 tablespoons minced garlic
2 1/2 cups chicken broth, divided
1/4 cup pitted Greek olives, chopped ( I left mine whole)
3 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
1 tablespoon quick-cooking tapioca
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon dried oregano
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6oz each)
1 3/4 cups uncooked couscous
1/2 cup crumbles feta cheese

What To Do:
 In a small skillet saute the onion in 1 tablespoon oil until crisp-tender. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Transfer to crock pot.

Stir in 3/4 cups chicken broth, olives, tomatoes, tapioca, lemon peel, and oregano. Add chicken. Cover and cook on low for 3 1/2 to 4 hours or until chicken is tender.

In a large saucepan, bring remaining oil and broth to a boil. Stir in couscous. Cover and remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes or until broth is absorbed. Serve with chicken; sprinkle with feta cheese. ENJOY!!
