Chicken and Sausage Couscous
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp olive oil
about 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cubed
1/2 lb or more of sausage, sliced
3 med-lg carrots, sliced
1 1/4 cups chicken broth or stock
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8 - 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (more if you are from Louisiana)
1 large zuccini, cubed
*2 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped (I DID NOT USE TOMATOES)
15 oz. can garbanzo beans (Chick Peas), drained and rinsed
1 cup (or more) couscous (I use Near East Whole Grain Original because it is really fluffy)
In a large, heavy skillet or Dutch oven cook the onion and garlic in hot oil till tender but not brown. Add the chicken, sausage, carrots, broth, celery, salt, cumin, turmeric, and red pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the zuccini, tomatoes, and garbanzo beans. Cover and cook 10 more minutes or until chicken and veggies are tender.
Meanwhile, prepare couscous according to package directions. To serve, spoon couscous in to a serving bowl. Spoon chicken, sausage, and veggies over couscous.
