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!
