Ingredient List: 


1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, seasoned
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups fat-free chicken broth
1 1/2 cups couscous
1 medium zucchini, thinly sliced (2 cups)
1 yellow bell pepper, cut in bite-size pieces
1 cup thick and chunky salsa, heated
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese mixture
3/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
1/4 cup chopped green onions


Season chicken breasts as desired with salt, pepper, garlic salt, taco seasoning, etc. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet; cook chicken over medium high heat, turning occasionally until browned and meat is cooked through (10 to 15 minutes, depending on thickness of meat). Remove chicken from skillet; cut into 1/2-inch strips; keep warm. 
In medium saucepan, bring broth to a boil; stir in couscous. Remove from heat and cover. Let stand 5 minutes. 
In the same skillet place zucchini and yellow pepper; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until tender yet crisp, about 5 minutes.
Fluff couscous with a fork and place on large platter. Drizzle with 1/2 of salsa. Top with zucchini and peppers, then chicken. Sprinkle with cheese. Drizzle with remaining salsa. Top with dollops of sour cream and green onions.
