garlic chicken couscous

Most of the time when I share a recipe I try to include a little story, a little anecdote that leads up to the food.  I try to bring it all full circle in the end.  Today, I'm not gonna lie.  I got nothin'.

What I can tell you is this:  I'm hungry.  I like chicken.  I like quick and easy prep.  And this recipe fits the bill. It has garlic, it has wine, it has onions.  It all goes into the slow cooker and comes out a chickeny-garlicky-saucy dinner to be served over a bed of couscous.  This is a recipe I must share with you.

This recipe for Slow-Cooker Garlic Chicken With  Couscous comes from good ole Martha Stewart.  After lightly browning chicken pieces in a skillet, the onion, garlic and thyme are tossed into the slow cooker and the chicken pieces are placed on top with a little salt & pepper.  Flour and white wine are whisked together and drizzled over top.  In as little as 3.5 hours (on high) or 7 hours (on low), the chicken & sauce is ready to be served over couscous which takes approximately five minutes to prepare.  Top it off with parsley.

So there you have it, no fuss, no muss.

What is muss?  I'm going to have to look that up....

This is it! This is the dinner we had at our Pinterest Party! Incredibly easy and so, so flavorful.  Here's the gist:

You rub down boneless, skinless chicken breasts with a yummy blend of spices (paprika, cumin, etc.) then cook it either on the stove or on the bbq (which is what we did).  Meanwhile "cook" your couscous (just pour boiling water over it, let it sit a few minutes then fluff with a fork) and add fresh veggies such as snap peas, cherry tomatoes, lemon zest and basil.  Slice the chicken and serve over the couscous.

Seriously, I don't know how to communicate how good it is and quite healthy.  Get the full recipe here and make it this weekend!

 

 Your Friday recipe is coming to you a day early, hope you don't mind.  With Easter coming I wanted to dedicate our time together to that.  Back to your regularly scheduled programming next week!
