Chicken Cous Cous

Chicken couscous salad
This recipe will take less than half an hour; substantially less if
you’re fast at chopping vegetables or have someone to help. It is also
very healthy.

Chicken Couscous Salad
1 1/4 c chicken broth (fat free, low sodium)
1 c couscous
2 cooked chicken breasts, diced
1 bunch thinly-sliced green onions
1 chopped, peeled cucumber
1/2 c chopped parsley
2 T pine nuts, toasted
1/2 c bell pepper, orange or red (recipe calls for radishes, but we hates them)

1/2 c white wine vinegar
3 T extra virgin olive oil
2 t ground cumin
1 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
6 cloves garlic, minced

Bring the chicken broth to a boil, then turn off the heat. Stir in
couscous, cover, let stand 5 minutes. While the couscous cooks, chop
up all the vegetables. In a separate bowl, mix all the dressing
ingredients. Fluff the couscous and add it to the vegetables, add the
chicken, and pour the dressing over the salad to combine.

and each is 329 calories. And 1/5 is actually a reasonable dinner —
I’ve made this for myself and two friends, and had at LEAST two
servings left over.
