The Mediterranean Sea may conjure up images of calm blue shores and lazy, sunny days spent at the beach. This recipe, however, although undeniably Mediterranean in flavor, is anything but laid back. In fact, it will be in and out of your kitchen in barely any time at all—you can make it in as little as 20 minutes. All it takes is a few zaps in the microwave to warm up the stock for the couscous, followed by a little chopping for the salad and a quick sautée for the chicken.

Pat chicken dry with a paper towel. Season all over with turmeric, ½ tsp paprika (save the rest for the next step), salt, pepper, and remaining Mediterranean spice. Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned and no longer pink throughout, 4-7 minutes.
