|2½ – 3 lbs||Foster Farms Simply Raised drumsticks|
|1 cup||Israeli couscous|
|5 tbsps||snipped fresh basil, divided|
|2 tbsps||minced onion|
|2 cloves||garlic, minced|
|1 tsp||finely shredded lime zest|
|¾ tsp||salt, divided|
|½ tsp||ground black pepper, divided|
|4 tbsps||olive oil, divided|
|1 tsp||lime juice|
|2 cups||oranges, blood oranges, or grapefruit, peeled and sliced crosswise|
1. In medium-size pot, combine 2½ cups water and the Israeli couscous. Bring to boiling; reduce heat to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and let cool.
2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large shallow baking pan with foil; set aside. In a small bowl, combine 4 tablespoons basil, onion, garlic, lime zest, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Rub herb mixture evenly over drumsticks. Arrange drumsticks in prepared baking pan; drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Bake 40 to 50 minutes until golden brown and juices run clear. The internal temperature of the chicken should be 180ºF. Always use a meat thermometer to determine the temperature.
3. Stir 2 tablespoons olive oil, the lime juice, 1 tablespoon snipped fresh basil, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper into the Israeli couscous. Transfer to a serving platter. Top with citrus fruit slices and serve alongside roasted chicken.
COOK TO A SAFE INTERNAL TEMPERATURE OF AT LEAST 165°F. ALWAYS use a meat thermometer to determine the temperature. Do not rely solely on suggested cooking times. Cooking appliances vary in temperature and cooking times are a GUIDE ONLY.
