Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 1 lb), cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 tsp each sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 large sweet apples, such as Gala, cored and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup full-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp yellow curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 11⁄3 cups whole-wheat couscous
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Preparation

  1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Add chicken and cook until browned, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  2. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add apples and garlic and sauté for 1 minute more. Add broth, yogurt, curry powder, ginger and cumin. Stir well. Return chicken to pan, nestling into sauce. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare couscous according to package directions. Divide couscous and chicken mixture among plates. Sprinkle with cilantro.
