Spicy Chicken With Couscous

"This is a deliciously spicy low fat chicken dish. You control the spiciness with strength of the curry powder you add. You can even leave out the chicken to use it as a side dish."

    I agree with the others who said this is bland. The recipe requires some tweaking to get taste. Four zucchinis seems like way too much, and I cut this to two and added some green pepper. I used an extra tsp of curry powder, and also added about 1/2 tsp salt. It helps to make the couscous with chicken broth instead of water too. I thought with these mods it turned out pretty well, but the fam rejected it.

    We loved this dish! I only used 1 tsp of curry powder, but I added 2 tsp of Emeril's "Essence" I had mixed up a while back. And I accidentally bought diced tomatoes with basil and garlic. It came out fabulous.

    Good... but pretty bland; not spicy enough for our tastes. I added three times the amount of curry (we are curry fanatics) and left the rest of the recipe the same. Thanks for sharing!

    Loved it!!! Small amount of salt but not small on flavor. I mixed the couscous with the chicken and it was a wonderful hearty meal....will make it again. It didn't need a single thing changed to make it better! Thanks Rogue Red!

    Easy and tasty. I doubled the amounts of spices other than coriander (I left that one out just because of personal prefrence) because it was a bit bland for our taste with the amounts listed but a nice blend of flavors.Thanks for a great quick dish.
