Greek Dinner in a Bowl

I love dinner in a bowl.  It's easy to serve, easy to eat and you can customize it to suit the tastes of everyone in your family.
Last night I made a Greek style dinner in a bowl.  It was so delicious that I thought I'd share my little concoction with you. 

Tina's Greek Dinner in a Bowl
Prep Time:  20 mins
Serves:  4
Ingredients:
1 Box of Trader Joe's Israeli Couscous
2 Grilled Chicken Breasts cut up into bite sized pieces
20 Kalamata Olives
1 pound of broccoli steamed and chopped into small pieces
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Pinch or two of sea salt
1/2 Cup of Crumbled Feta


Make your couscous according to the directions on the box. 
Once your broccoli, couscous and chicken are all ready, mix them together in a large pan.
Add the olive oil and salt and lemon (if you like).  Mix in the kalamata olives, or, put them in a bowl on the table and let people add to their bowl (I was the only one who had them in mine!).
Serve and top with crumbled feta.

It's good, it's filling and it's well rounded.  What more can you ask for?
You could add whatever else you'd like, too... Tomatoes... MMM.  You could use spinach instead of broccoli.  You get the point. ;)
Also, 2 people in my family preferred Parmesan cheese so you could sub the feta for that, or goat cheese.

Speaking of goat cheese...

I was at a friends the other night and she introduced me to fig jelly.  It was so so so oh so good.  While at Trader Joe's, I found this-fig butter.

Fig butter, goat cheese, crackers.  HEAVENLY.  If you need to bring something to a party, bring this combo.  You'll be the talk of the town.
