Greek Lemon Chicken and Zucchini Couscous

 So, I was eating dinner at my friends' house the other night and absolutely loved it.  In fact, I even had seconds.  It was something pretty similar to this, but I have added a few more things to it to make it my own.  Super yummy and healthy couscous dish though!  :)  Perfect for Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall!  :)  Or Spring in the middle of winter like it is here in NC! ;)

What you'll need:
~ 3 c. Cooked Couscous (cooked to its package recommendations)
1/2 lb. Chicken Breasts, cut up
1-1/2 c. Zucchini, diced (~ 2 zucchinis)
1 Medium Onion, diced
1/2 c. Carrot, shredded (~ 1 carrot)
1/2 c. Feta Cheese, crumbled
1 T. Olive Oil
1/4 Lemon Juice
Zest from 1 lemon
Basil for garnish

In a large skillet saute the onion and chicken in the olive oil, stirring frequently until the chicken has no pink left.  Add the zucchini and cook until tender crisp or about 3-5 minutes.  Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest, carrots, feta cheese and couscous until heated through.  Serve and garnish with basil on top.  Enjoy!  :)
