I'm always looking for ways to get my 2 kidlets to try new foods, especially veggies. I created this halfway homemade dish tonight and it was a success!


Warm Chicken and Couscous Salad

1 box Toasted Pine Nut couscous (the Roasted Garlic and Olive Oil would be great too!)
2 cups cooked chicken (I used left over roast chicken.)
1/2 can garbanzo beans
2 small zucchini, cut into bite size chunks (new veggie!)
1/2 onion, diced
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Make couscous according to the package's directions. Set aside.

In a large sauce pot, sautee onion in olive oil over medium  until almost translucent. Add zucchini and cook until about halfway translucent and then garbanzos and chicken go in the pot with the garlic, oregano, coriander,and black pepper. Allow to warm through.

Stir in couscous, cover and allow the herbs to flavor everything with the residual steam.

Soooo yummy!

You could totally do this with real couscous and flavor it as you wish. I was just using what I had on hand. You could add cherry tomatoes, spinach or even frozen veggies in a pinch. Use whatever works for you!

Also any meat would work. I normally have my grilling husband to cook up an extra chicken breast or two for this sort of meal.
