Pan Fried Chicken Breasts /w/ Panchetta Cream & Couscous
These are both so delicious. The chicken recipe is Brad Sorenson’s, a Next Food Network Star finalist. His recipe calls for boneless chicken thighs, but I use breasts because I’m not a fan of dark meat.
The couscous is Ina Garten’s. It calls for dried currants, but I use dried cranberries. It calls for 3-4 shallots, but I find that 2 is plenty. I also omit the parsley and add either chives or scallions to add more flavor. Also, pine nuts can be really expensive, so feel free to omit if you are on a budget.
