With orange and coriander flavors, a Belgian Witbier is the natural choice for these lemon-flavored couscous bowls.

TK Table Talk:

According to North African tradition, couscous is prepared to celebrate a house warming or a holiday. What foods mean holiday to you?

3. Grill chicken: While couscous cooks, heat a grill or grill pan over mediumhigh heat. Combine honey and ONLY half of lemon juice. Rub chicken with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until done, basting with honey-lemon mixture.

4. Make vinaigrette: Stir together remaining lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl.

4. Finish couscous: Add vinaigrette, parsley, mint, and pistachios to couscous, tossing to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

To Serve: Chop chicken and divide evenly with couscous between 2 serving bowls.

Pro Tip:

Have a vegetarian in the family? The couscous without the chicken is a great stand-alone recipe as well.
Spice it Up!: Make the lemon-honey glaze spicy by adding some crushed red pepper before brushing on the chicken.
