I use to have a roommate that was Jordanian, and really did not like being in the kitchen. She made one thing, chicken couscous with tomatoes. I did not grow up eating couscous but have grown to love it. It is perect because you can use the couscous as a base and add what you like. This can be a quick and simple meal or side depending on what is added.

1 (10oz) Box of Couscous
1 Small Yellow Onion (chopped)
1 Large Garlic Clove (chopped)
2 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon of Butter
1/2 Cup Chopped Carrots
2 Cups of Chicken Broth
3/4 Cup Chopped Parsley
1/3 Cup Chopped Mint
1 Scallions Chopped
1 Cup of Chopped Cooked Chicken
1 Cup of Dried Cranberries
Juice of 1 Lemon
Salt and Pepper to Taste

In a saucepan cook onions and garlic with 1 Tablespoon of Oil and Butter for about 3 minutes add the carrots and Chicken broth. Once the broth starts to boil add Couscous. (It will take between 3-5 minutes of the couscous to absorb the broth- watch to make sure it is not over cooked) In a large boil mix together the remaining ingredient with the couscous. Can serve warm or cold.
