• One Pot Meal: Cheesy Couscous with Chicken & Spinach

    March 27, 2013

    Hi, friends! Happy Hump Day!  :mrgreen:

    I made a delicious lunch today and just wanted to share the recipe with you guys. It was delicious, satisfying, quick, easy, and made in just one pot. Love that!


    This recipe only calls for 6 ingredients:


    • 1 cup chopped spinach (frozen or fresh)
    • 1.5 cups chunked chicken
    • 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or cow’s milk)
    • 4 wedges of The Laughing Cow Light French Onion
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 cup uncooked pearl/Israeli couscous (regular couscous or quinoa would probably work too)

    Directions: Cook pearl/Israeli couscous as instructed by directions on package in a large pot on the stove top. When it is finished cooking, add the wedges of cheese, spinach, milk, garlic powder, and chicken to the pot while it is still hot. Mix well. Serve immediately.


    Mmm! This dish turned out so well, and it would definitely make great leftovers. You could easily make it for dinner one night and then save half for lunch the next day. Easy-peasy.

    Man, I wish they would start selling those special flavoured Laughing Cow cheese wedges in Holland too! They sound so good!!

    You had me at “cheesy”. This looks great!

    Last night for dinner I had lemon dill salmon with roasted brussels sprouts and a bulgur salad with lemon, dill and feta!

    I love one pot meals, quick and filling. I’ve been eating stir fry all week for dinner. It’s time to change it up with this recipe.

    That looks really good! We’ve been on the run so much this week, it seems like we’ve eaten out almost every night…Ready for a night at home!

    I am so excited you put this recipe up. I have had Israeli couscous in my pantry for a couple weeks and I haven’t found a great recipe yet. But this sounds delicious and easy. I am definitely trying this soon. Thanks. 🙂

    This looks delicious! I’m going to make this with quinoa and tofu and see how it turns out. Do you think the Light Creamy Swiss wedges would work good too?


    Tina March 28, 2013 at 11:08 am

    Yes! I think they’d be really good! 🙂
