Asian Couscous

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ShortyBond

Tonight I was making Chicken Zing and I needed a side dish with an oriental flair... I came up with this and got great reviews from the family! (Cooking time is the time the cous cous needs to sit.)

This was GREAT! My husband is always telling me NOT to cook couscous because he hates it, but that doesn't stop me from trying once in a while lol. He actually liked this one! I added a bit of sweet asian chili sauce, and some sesame oil and I eyeballed most of the other ingredients. It was simple and tasted great with our Orange Teryiaki Chicken!
