Warm Roasted Chicken and Couscous

Warm Roasted Chicken & Couscous; roasted garlic chicken with couscous, zucchini, hearts of palm, tuscan marinated cherry tomatoes & herb feta cheese, sauteed in a champagne vinaigrette
 
My friend and I tried out this special at the Nordstrom Cafe one time. She loved it so much that the server just gave her the recipe when she asked him many questions.  Let me see if I have got this right.
 
Ingredients
couscous   5oz
pulled garlic chicken   3 oz 
hearts of palm  1 oz
zucchini  2 oz
tuscan marinated, cherry tomatoes    1 oz
herbed feta 2 oz
champagne vinaigrette  1.5 oz
olive oil  0 .5 oz
 
Procedure
1.  In a saute pan heat the olive oil slightly.  Add the couscous, zucchini and saute until lightly brown.
2.  Add the chicken, champagne vinaigrette, hearts of palm, cherry tomatoes and half the herbed feta.  Saute until warm.
3,  Place in the couscous salad in the center of the bowl, with as much height as possible.  Garnish with remaining feta and serve.
 

I found another chicken and couscous recipe on line which are quite similar to this dish that we tried.  I hope my friend will make good use of them.
