Spicy chicken couscous

Sharing is caring!

Our spicy chicken couscous is really economical and really yummy. Using leftover roast chicken from the Sunday roast this would make a great take to work lunch or quick and easy supper for a Monday.

To make up the spicy chicken couscous firstly cook the couscous as per the packet instructions, no need to use chicken stock, just plain boiled water and a tiny pinch of salt will be fine.

Once the couscous is cooked, stir through the curry paste, throw in the chopped chicken breast and add cooked peas and a grated raw carrot. It’s just so easy.

Delicious served with a spoonful of mango chutney, lime pickle or mint raita, if you wanted.
