2 medium oranges
2 tablespoons soy sauce

1. Cook chicken, couscous and sauce simultaneously, as follows:

2. Couscous: Cook according to package directions. Mix in raisins when couscous is cooked.

3. Chicken: Wet chicken with a little water and then coat with the breadcrumbs. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, and add garlic and chicken. Fry about 5 minutes on each side, or until chicken is cooked through.

4. Sauce: Grate zest from one orange. Place the zest in a small saucepan with the juice from the two oranges and the soy sauce. Gently boil for 1 minute. Add the scallions.
