Spinach and Chicken Couscous
Whole Grain Recipe: Spinach and Chicken Couscous
  • 2 cups cooked, chopped chicken (I used leftover baked chicken that I had made the night before)
  • 5 cups fresh spinach (mine was from the garden!)
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 cup whole wheat couscous (most couscous is white grains, so make sure you find the whole grain)
  • ½ cup sliced fresh basil
  1. Follow directions for cooking couscous.
  2. While couscous is cooking, spray a pan with cooking spray and cook chopped nuts in pan for 3-5 minutes until toasted
  3. Remove nuts from pan, add chicken and spinach, and cook until spinach is wilted (3-5 minutes)
  4. Add nuts, basil and couscous to chicken and spinach.
  5. Salt as needed, stir and serve!
