Curried Couscous with Chicken

Curried couscous is a fun way to spice up ordinary couscous. A palate of curry powder, turmeric, coconut milk and cilantro will help satisfy any craving. It’s also a great way to use up leftover chicken, but feel free to leave that out if you are seeking a vegetarian dish.
