Chicken and Broccoli Couscous With Salsa

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

Couscous is one of the staple foods of the Maghreb (western North Africa). I am always experimenting & combining it with different flavors. I watched a friend whip this up for our lunch one day & it became my new favorite.

This was simple to make and good! I prepared it exactly as directed by the recipe. I found that the salsa is where most of the flavor comes from. The salsa flavor compliments the broccoli and couscous nicely. You can add as much salsa as you like. The recipe sounded to me like it took a bit of preparation, but I was pleasantly surprised as to how easily it came together! Will be having left overs for lunch today! Thanks SusieQusie - PAC 2006!
