Green Chicken Curry

My husband loved it...and that is saying something. He even took seconds! Woo-hoo! I love those nights in the kitchen, they make all the time worthwhile...especially when all the time is about 30 minutes! YES! I love quick, delicious meals! This had just the correct amount of kick, and the cous cous...mmmmm! I am now going to start rotating cous cous into our meal plan, I loved it! Not to mention cilantro, it always gives the perfect fresh taste to every meal.

2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, sliced into 1/2-inch strips
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 (14-ounce) can coconut milk
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilies
2 teaspoons curry powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 cups couscous, cooked according to package directions
3 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves

Season raw, sliced chicken with salt and black pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 2 minutes per side until golden brown.

In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut milk, green chilies, curry powder, cumin, and cilantro. Add mixture to chicken and bring to a simmer. Simmer 10-12 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and sauce thickens and reduces slightly. Serve chicken and green curry sauce over couscous.

Serves 4.

I made this with two large cans of chicken and it was fantastic. Great with some plain greek yogurt or sour cream, and cashews, as toppings. We had this over white sticky rice.
