Heat oil in ovenproof Dutch oven or large deep skillet on medium-high heat. Add half the chicken; cook 3 to 4 min. on each side or until evenly browned on both sides. Remove chicken from pan; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining chicken. Discard all but 1 Tbsp. drippings from pan.
Add carrots, tomatoes, dressing, ginger and garlic to reserved drippings in pan; stir. Bring to boil; simmer on medium-low heat 10 min., stirring occasionally. Top with chicken; cover.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF). Serve with couscous.
Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
Substitute hot cooked long-grain white rice for the couscous.
Keeping It Safe
The best way to thaw frozen chicken is in the refrigerator. Never thaw chicken or other meats at room temperature on the countertop, since that would provide an ideal temperature for bacterial growth. When thawing chicken in the refrigerator, place on a plate on the bottom shelf to prevent any raw juices from dripping onto other foods or refrigerator surfaces. For quicker thawing, place chicken in a freezerweight resealable plastic bag, then seal bag and submerge it in cold water. Let stand until thawed, changing the water every 30 min.
