Couscous Salad with Chicken, Tomato and Basil

I didn't have the feta for this recipe, but it was still mighty tasty!! SO fast!

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (15.75-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups uncooked couscous
2 cups chopped tomato (about 1 1/4 pounds)
2 cups chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breast (about 2 breast halves)
1/3 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup (1-ounce) crumbled feta cheese

Combine 1 tablespoon olive oil and garlic in a large microwave-safe bowl, and microwave at high for 45 seconds. Add the broth; microwave at high 4 minutes or until mixture simmers. Gradually stir in couscous; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Stir in the tomato, chicken, basil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil, and sprinkle with cheese.
