Lime Veggie Couscous & Mango Salsa w/ Curry Chicken



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!  :)




Mango Salsa

1 mango 
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!
