    1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
    2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
    1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon curry powder
    1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
    1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    1/8 teaspoon black pepper
    10 oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    Cooking spray

    1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
    3/4 cup uncooked couscous
    2 tablespoons raisins
    1 tablespoon sliced green onion tops
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper



To prepare chicken, combine the first 11 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 24 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove chicken from bag, discard marinade.

Preheat broiler.
Place chicken breasts on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 4 inches from heat for 10-15 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 180°.

To prepare the couscous, bring the broth to a boil in a medium saucepan, and gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Stir in the raisins, green onions, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
