This dish brings together savory flavors from chicken accompanied with Caribbean jerk seasoning and a variety of freshly cut vegetables like carrots, zucchini, onions, beans and cauliflower with a layer of melted Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Fine Cut, fresh thyme and mango chutney.

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2-1/2 tsp. Caribbean jerk seasoning, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 oz.) chicken broth

  • 1 cup couscous, uncooked
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Fine Cut
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme (optional)
