I love this covered dish a friend offered me years ago..
I often use it for Couscous salads~
Today was no exception~
I got up early...I knew I had a busy day..and started with a Couscous salad..
I used one cup of couscous..
1 cup of broth..
I sautéed onions and a touch of garlic in one tbsp of butter..
Added the broth..brought to a slow boil.
Poured the couscous in..covered.. and let sit for 5 minutes..off the stove..
Fluffed repeatedly w/ a fork..Really good couscous.. every little couscous must be separated:)
I added sun dried tomatoes..chopped.. on whole tomato chopped.. one handful of chopped fresh basil.. same of parsley..chopped red peppers and a special little spicy salt I have:) A touch of ground pepper and a generous splash of EVOO.A few raspings of lemon rind~
Combined and vintage potted:)
Just a dish can make the food taste better to me:)
Now just that could have been my meal..I could just eat it until I could not stop:)
But I was anxious to try Susan's new Chicken Recipe..so Jacques grilled 2 breasts..and I gently turned them over and over in her sauce..
and served w/ a splash of it on top of the breasts..along with the couscous..
On the deck~ After a long day..w/ the birds chirping and the flowers blooming..
It's just as good as it gets.
Thanks Susan for a nice treat.
I am a poulet lover~
