Curried Cranberry Chicken and Couscous (or C4)


I'm a little bit of a picky eater. One of the more benign things I don't care for is rice.  I know this is weird because it doesn't really even taste (I don't mind brown rice too much).  What's more weird is that I love Couscous. Here's one of my quick and easy favs that I based on one I found ont the Near East website.

2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into chunks
2 tsp curry pwdr
1 tsp EVOO
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
1 16 ounce can chicken broth
1 cup broccoli
2 tsp brown sugar
1 cup couscous (I use the whole grain kind)
1/2 cup craisins

Sprinkle the chicken w/ 1 tsp curry powder and saute in large pan with EVOO until no longer pink inside.  Remove from pan.  Saute onion and garlic until tender. (sometimes I add a little red bell pepper too).  Add broth, broccoli, sugar, 1 tsp curry, and the chicken.  Bring mixture to a boil.  Stir in couscous.  Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.  Add craisins and toss lightly with a fork.

Quick, healthy and 2/3 of my kids don't think it's disgusting.

  3. Haha... you had me cracking up with that last line. :) We've never been big curry fans in this house, but it looks like it's just a small enough amount that it would give it great flavor without being overpowering. We eat couscous at least once a week, and this would be a great way to spice it up!

    Found you at Cast Party Wednesday and am your newest follower! I'd love for you to pop over today and share this with So Sweet Sundays (ending tonight at midnight)! :) Looking forward to checking out more of your fun blog!
