Chicken Curry with Vegetables

Chicken Curry with Vegetables is a simple, quick, healthy meal.  The use of Trader Joe’s Simmer Sauce, chopped butternut squash, and whole wheat couscous that cooks quickly, leaves only a bit of up front preparation. If you can chop an onion, jalapeño, chicken, and grate ginger, you’ve got the cooking ability to make this meal! It’s that simple and it’s tasty too!

Quick Chicken Curry with Vegetables Recipe

A healthy diet habit is to collect 10 or 20 of these types of healthy recipes so you won’t be lured into the call of fast food! When your family needs to eat quickly and you are tired, this is still a really nice meal that you can whip out. I always leave a jar of the simmer sauce, garbanzo beans, and whole wheat couscous in my pantry, and peas in my freezer. I’m set. If you don’t have all the ingredients it turns out just as good with just chicken, peas, and the curry sauce over couscous! Simple!

*If you don’t want meat, this meal can be made vegan or vegetarian by just leaving out the chicken. There is plenty of protein with the garbanzo bean and couscous combination!

This recipe is a combination of curry and a Mediterranean couscous recipe I love. I’ve simplified it because most of the time quick meals make more sense.
