Austin cooked again, and he’s getting good at it! He’s always been good at grilling (can’t wait for summer), but he’s never been one for following recipes. It was a simple recipe, but it made a delicious light meal.
We then marinated chicken with a sun-dried tomato Kraft dressing/marinade and cooked it at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes to put over the couscous.
Couscous with Lime Sauce
(adapted from the Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook)
1 ½ cups water
1 cup couscous
1 tsp olive oil
½ tsp salt
½ pack of frozen veggies that includes pepper strips—red, green, yellow— and onions (or you could use fresh, red pepper strips and scallions. You know I do very poorly with using fresh veggies in time, so frozen is normally the way I go)
1 carrot, chopped
¼ cup lime juice
2 tbs dried parsley (¼ cup finely chopped fresh parsley)
¼ tsp pepper
In a medium saucepan, bring water to boil; add couscous, oil and salt. Remove from heat; couscous will cook within 5 minutes.
In large microwave safe bowl, microwave frozen veggies until not frozen/warm. Add carrots, lime juice, parsley, and pepper. Add couscous; toss to combine.
Top with chicken. Serve and enjoy. Serves 6; 3 points each.
