Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /home/customer/www/adv4life.com/public_html/wp-content/themes/newstube/functions.php on line 1651
2 tablespoons Wildtree Honey Dijon Dressing & Dipping Sauce (or regular honey dijon dressing)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
4 slices bacon, chopped
4 chicken breast (about 1 pound)
½ onion, finely diced
1 ¼ cup water
1 tablespoon Wildtree Chicken Bouillon Soup Base
1 cup couscous
1 tablespoon fresh chopped chive
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
¼ teaspoon Wildtree Rancher Steak Rub
Method of Preparation:
Whisk together the Honey Dijon Dressing and maple syrup; set aside. Cook the bacon in medium nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 6-8 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towel lined plate. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat from the skillet and return pan to medium heat until the fat shimmers.
Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Cook chicken until golden brown and cooked through, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer to platter, brush with mustard mixture, brush with the Honey Dijon mixture, and tent loosely with aluminum foil.
Add the onion to the now empty skillet and cook over medium heat, about 3 minutes. Add broth and bring to a simmer.
Stir in couscous, cover, remove from heat, and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir cooked bacon, chives, vinegar, and Rancher SteakRub into the couscous. Serve with chicken.
