Sun-dried Tomato & Parmesan Couscous

I typically choose a rice or pasta over couscous, but since we were out of rice, I decided to make up something new for dinner last night. And we all ended up really liking it- even Ryan, who is not quite two! I believe his words were, "I YIKE it, Mommy!"

Try it for yourselves and see what you think!

1 box Near East Parmesan Couscous
2T butter
1lb chicken, chunked
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes from the jar (looks like this)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream

Melt butter in pan. Add chicken and brown on both sides, cooking until it is almost completely cooked through (5-7 minutes on medium heat). Add tomatoes and garlic and simmer for another minute, stirring so the garlic doesn't burn. Add parmesan package from couscous box, wine and cream. Bring to a low boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 3-4 more minutes. Add couscous, mix, remove pan from heat, and cover with a lid for 5 minutes. Mix again before serving.
