By removing the skin from the chicken and pairing it with low-fat couscous,
you can enjoy chocolate cake, too, without blowing the bank as far as fat
in concerned.

In this dish, chicken is nestled in a bed of robust Sicilian ingredients,
including capers and tomatoes.

Combine basil, oregano, salt and pepper; sprinkle half of the mixture over
both sides of chicken.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat;
brown chicken on all sides, about 4 minutes. Transfer to plate and set

in skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook onion, garlic and
remaining basil mixture, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until softened.

Add tomatoes, breaking up with spoon, cinnamon, vinegar and capers; bring
to boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until chicken is
no longer pink inside.

Sprinkle with parsley.
