Crispy panko-coated chicken sounded pretty tough to top, but luckily, our chefs were up to the challenge. They went and made it 65x (a scientific number) more delicious by adding mozzarella and Italian Seasoning to the crunchy coating. And while the chicken is the main event, the sides are excellent accompanying acts. We’re serving up savory, buttery couscous and crispy-edged roasted broccoli. The best part, though? Everything comes together in under 40 minutes! Talk about a weeknight win.

Prep
1

Adjust rack to top position (top and middle positions for 4 servings) and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Zest and quarter lemon.

In a medium bowl, combine panko, mozzarella, Italian Seasoning, 1 TBSP olive oil (2 TBSP for 4 servings), salt, and pepper.

Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season all over with salt and pepper. Lightly coat a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil. Place chicken on one side of sheet (for 4 servings, spread out across entire sheet). Evenly spread sour cream onto tops of chicken, then mound with panko mixture, pressing firmly to adhere (no need to coat the undersides).

Toss broccoli on opposite side of sheet from chicken with a large drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. (For 4 servings, add broccoli to a second baking sheet; roast on middle rack.) Roast on top rack until chicken is golden brown and cooked through and broccoli is slightly crispy, 15-20 minutes. TIP: If broccoli is finished before chicken, remove from oven and continue roasting chicken.

Meanwhile, melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add couscous and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, until toasted, 2-3 minutes. Add ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4) and stock concentrate. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until couscous is tender, 6-8 minutes. Drain any excess liquid, if necessary.
