Adapted from Everyday Food, June, 2008

1 cup NOW Real Food® Organic Whole Wheat Couscous*
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

  3. Remove sheet from oven and turn chicken, skin side up.
  4. Scatter zucchini around chicken and season with salt and pepper; toss with pan juices.
