Easy Recipe for Chicken Curry

There is something about the taste of curry that I find myself adding it to many different dishes. We love the spicy flavor and depth it adds to many chicken recipes. I often include couscous with the chicken as my laziness sets in and it takes less than five minutes. The chicken and couscous make a perfect marriage.

Couscous requires lots of seasonings, and other ingredients to dress it up, as it has a very bland flavor. Couscous is wheat semolina that has been crushed and rubbed. You can buy whole grain, organic or regular couscous. At the risk of repeating myself I love his grain because it takes less than five minute to cook, which is great when in a hurry. Make sure to add some oil or butter while cooking or immediately after cooking, as the couscous tends to clump. Couscous expands in volume and half-cup of dry couscous makes four generous servings.
