Blackened Chicken with Couscous & Blackbeans

This whole meal comes together in 20 minutes- which is basically why it's blog worthy.  The flavors aren't ground breaking or anything- but 20 minutes folks! And, the chicken isn't really blackened.. obviously, but it has all the same flavors as your typical blackened chicken... hence the name.

  • 1/2 tsp paprika (I like smoked)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  1. In shallow bowl combine everything but the olive oil and chicken.  Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet.  Coat the chicken in the flour-spice mixture, and place in the heated pan.  Cook about 6 minutes per side, until the crust is golden and the juices run clear.
  • 2 cups whole wheat couscous
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 15oz can black beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  1. In a saucepan bring the vegetable stock to a boil, add the couscous, beans, and corn, then turn off the heat.  Cover and let sit for at least five minutes.  Add Worcestershire sauce, fluff with a fork and serve.
Yields 4 servings.
