At our home, we love the easy preparation and delicious nutty flavor of whole wheat couscous. In 5 minutes total time, you can have a healthy whole grain ready to eat. For this weekday recipe, we chop chicken breast, add to a lightly oiled pan, thoroughly cover with Jammin' Jerk, and add a little chopped garlic and fresh ground black pepper. As chicken is cooking, add froxen Asian stir fry vegetable mix to pan and cover. Meanwhile, heat 2 cups of water to boil in a microwave (3 minutes), then mix into to 2 cups whole wheat couscous with a dash of salt, black pepper, and 1 Tbsp. butter. Let stand 2-3 minutes until all moisture absorbed then flaky until fluffy. Once chicken and vegetable mixture is fully cooked, make a sauce to thicken by mixing 2 Tbsp. corn starch into 1/2 cup cold water then adding pan. Stir gently until sauce thickens then serve over couscous and pair with your favorite wine. Easy, healthy, and enjoyable!
