Israeli Couscous with Chicken, Peas and Carrots

Took a while for this one to get the official stamp of approval but it passed the test so here is another one for the healthy meal file!

I made this last minute and forgot to charge the Nikon so there aren't many photos to share so we will just jump right to the recipe!

Here is what you need:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 8 oz israeli couscous
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1 cup chopped shredded carrots
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken

Here is what you do with it:

1. add oil to a large skillet over medium heat, add couscous and garlic and saute for 5 minutes
2. add peas, carrots, chicken broth, garlic and onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper
3. bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer until liquid is absorbed..about 8 minutes
4. remove from heat and fold in chicken

I chose to serve these in pita bread with some red pepper hummus spread inside
