Recipe Ingredients for Grilled Soy Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper-Pineapple Couscous

24 oz chicken breasts
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
20 ounces Crushed Pineapple in Its Own Juice
1 cup roasted red peppers
1/4 cup finely chopped mint leaves
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp Olive oil
1 cup couscous

Recipe Directions for Grilled Soy Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper-Pineapple Couscous

  1. In a medium sized bowl, coat the chicken tenders with the soy sauce. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. Using a strainer and the back of a spoon, drain the pineapple, reserving all of the juice (1 1/4 cups) into a small sauce pan for the couscous.

  2. To make the salsa, combine the pineapple, peppers, mint, cilantro, and lime juice in a medium mixing bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. Bring the reserved pineapple juice to a boil and stir in the couscous. Cover the pot, remove it from the heat, and let stand for four minutes. Preheat a stove-top grill or BBQ over high heat. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator, season each side with salt and pepper, and drizzle it with olive oil.

  4. Place the chicken on the grill. And here's an important tip: you should hear a sizzling sound whenever you put any food on the grill. If you don't, your grill's not hot enough. Wait until the grill is very hot and listen for the sizzle! Grill the chicken for about three minutes per side.

  5. Mix all but a half cup of the salsa into the couscous. Season to taste with salt and pepper again. Use the remaining salsa to garnish the chicken, on top of the couscous.
