Citrus Couscous

This couscous goes well with a variety of chicken dishes, such as Spicy Chicken with Dates and Butternut Squash.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • Zest of 1 lemon or orange
  • 2 cups couscous, regular or whole wheat


Place a medium size saucepan over medium heat with the butter. Add the nuts to the melted butter and toast until golden brown, 4-5 minutes.

Add the stock and the zest of the lemon or orange to the pot and bring the liquid up to a bubble. Stir in the couscous, cover the pan and remove from the heat.

Let the couscous sit for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork and serve.
