The preparation of the protein takes a bit of a back seat in this meal. I found curry marinated chicken tenders at Trader Joes, so I threw them on the grill three minutes per side. Done and done!
The only prep work was chopping a few veggies! Look at the beautiful colors!
Here's what I did:
Lime Veggie Couscous
1 cup wheat couscous
1 cup chicken stock
1 tbsp. curry powder
1 tbsp. onion powder
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. butter
1/2 red onion
1/2 bag of snow peas
1 red bell pepper
2 - 3 tbsp. fresh cilantro
1 lime zested and juiced
Bring chicken stock, all seasonings, and butter to a boil. Pour in couscous, stir, remove from heat. Put a lid on it, and let it sit for 5 minutes. Chop all veggies, cilantro, zest the lime and add to a large bowl. Add a little salt and pepper and juice everything with the lime.
Fluff couscous with a fork, then add to the veggie bowl!
Keep in mind, you can add any veggie to this! Clean out the fridge! :)
1 jalapeno pepper
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 red onion
1 lime zest and juiced
salt and pepper
Chop all ingredients and mix together with the lime juice and zest. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve dinner. I put this salsa on everything!

Billy claims the fact that he is gay has kept him from signing a major record deal. If that's true, that is sad and...

Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model...
