Recipe - Curry Chicken Couscous

Duc had never had or heard of couscous before while I love it so I felt that it was time to expose him. We had this light couscous dish for dinner, and he ended up liking it so much that he made it himself the next day. I'd call that a success! It's super simple and quite healthy so give this a shot.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 orange bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 gala apple, diced
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tbsp butter, salted
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup whole wheat couscous, dry
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (or cubed)
Step 2: Making the couscous
In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil with the butter. Add in dry couscous and stir. Turn off heat and fluff with a fork. Mix in curry powder.

Step 3: Finishing
(If you don't have cooked chicken breast pieces, cook before making couscous.) Add in chicken and all vegetables/fruits. Combine thoroughly and enjoy!
