Chutney is a sweet-tart condiment with the consistency of jelly. Any fruit chutney can be served in place of the mango flavor that's called for.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium saucepan bring the water and curry powder to a boil. Stir in the couscous and salt. Cover the saucepan; remove the pan from heat. Let stand 5 minutes or until water is absorbed by the couscous.
  2. Stir about half of the chutney into the couscous mixture.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the chicken, green onions, tomatoes, melon, and remaining chutney.
  4. To serve, arrange torn lettuce on 6 individual plates. Spoon couscous onto the lettuce then top with the chicken mixture. Squeeze a lime wedge over each serving.

This was pretty good. It caught my eye because I love all of these ingredients: curry, gr. onions, chicken, couscous etc. I followed the recipe exactly and it did not take long. My husband and I had this for dinner. I didn't give it 5 because there were so many strong (perhaps conflicting) tastes going on in my mouth. It was a bit different for me to combine green onions and cantaloupe and have them in the same bite. I am still not totally sure I like the cantaloupe in there even though I was excited about it initially. Incidentally the couscous concoction was terrific. I also thought of adding something crunchy like toasted nuts or pine nuts on top to garnish. So yeah, I wouldn't say I am raving about it, but I'll save the recipe and probably make it again. Perhaps with cantaloupe on the side next time because I do think it's a good accompaniment.
