The way to glam up melon involves something sparkling

Prosecco’s fizz makes for fun ingredient to end of a meal Occasionally, I will spring for a glass of French Champagne, but I find Italian prosecco, Spanish cava or an American sparkling wine does the trick just as well for, typically, a much lower price, making it possible to enjoy that effervescence in an everyday way. 3 tablespoons superfine sugar (may substitute granulated sugar; see note) To serve, divide the melon balls and their liquid among 4 cocktail (martini) or dessert glasses; garnish each with about 1 tablespoon of the basil ribbons.

Dinner in 25 minutes: Moroccan Chicken Couscous

2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (tenderloins removed)

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cups no-salt-added chicken broth

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Heat oil in a Dutch oven or sauté pan with tight-fitting lid over medium heat.

Once oil shimmers, add onion, carrot, garlic, chicken, raisins, turmeric and cumin, stirring to combine.

Increase heat to medium-high; once liquid starts bubbling at edges, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 5 to 10 minutes or until couscous is tender and chicken is cooked through.
