Chicken & Apple Couscous

Monday, September 7, 2009

Warning: This is just the first in a series of apple recipes I'll be sharing with you this week. If you don't like apples, well... we can't be friends you're not going to like my blog this week.

After picking up our first 30 lbs. of apples earlier this weekend, I'm a bit apple obsessed. This morning, when we were trying to figure out what to eat for dinner tonight, I knew that I wanted to incorporate apples. After a little Googling, I found something that sounded perfect: chicken and apple couscous.

The flavors and spices in this dish really come together to give you a taste of fall. The recipe itself was really easy to throw together, so this would be a great weeknight meal. Plus, it's not at all heavy, which is nice. I'm bringing leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
