Dill Feta Chicken on Couscous

Recipe #3 in the Spartan Oil #EVOOChallenge.

I use olive oil exclusively when I saute vegetables or protein for any recipe.  One reason is olive oil is a monounsaturated fat, and is considered a good fatty acid (high density lipoproteins, HDLs) that protects against bad cholesterol, or low density lipoproteins (LDLs).  One other reason is the taste – I love the taste of olive oil. 

This recipes features the taste of the Mediterranean.  The dill, olive oil and feta add just the touch to create a unique recipe.  When I served this to my taste testers, this recipe received five stars!  Easy to prepare and perfect for entertaining.
