Chicken Couscous Stir Fry Stack

Every now and again, I feel like something different – a taste explosion as Pete calls it.  This usually only occurs when all I have on hand are the normal day to day ingredients and nothing out of the ordinary to help produce said taste explosion.  Now, a stir fry is always a winner in my book, as is pan fried chicken breasts and couscous ranks right up at the top of the list too although none really stand out as something different until you throw all of these elements together.  My taste buds were very happy with this lip smacking lunch.

  1. Mandy, you are so creative in the kitchen. This looks incredible. I know I’d love it. I can’t believe it, but I think I have everything I need for it too. Hmmmmm….
    Thanks for this!

  2. I give you credit, Mandy. You take some everyday ingredients and come up with this great stack. The fact that it’s a stir fry means it’s ready in minutes and that final drizzle of sweet chili is the perfect finishing touch. What a great recipe!

  3. Pete’s got it right.. that’s a taste explosion! And you’ve really made it so beautiful stacked perfectly atop the cous cous.. I’ve never attempted that, and you’ve mastered it!!
