    Garlic Paprika Chicken & Israeli Couscous


    If you have not tried smoked paprika yet, do yourself a favour and buy a bottle of that amazing spice. You, my friend, have been missing out big time. Yes, BIG TIME! I’ve polished a couple of bottles of smoked paprika. I pretty much put it in any and everything. Sprinkle a little over your scrambled egg. It instantly make it so much prettier and lends another layer of flavour to the fluffy eggs. 

    Besides lending a hint of smokiness and sweetness to the dish, that gorgeous hue brightens any dish. I can rave all day about that spice, but I’ll let the recipe do the talking. The chicken was amazing. Seriously, it was really good. I am going to use the same recipe to make some paprika wings in the very near future.

    I served it with Israeli couscous, also known as pearl couscous. This is my first time trying the larger grain of couscous. It has a bite somewhat like barley, and taste somewhat nutty. It is made out of wheat flour, therefore is high in fiber, and low on the glycemic index.

    To be honest, I’m not a big fan. Perhaps the combination of the texture and taste confuses me. But my girls, had 3 plates that night! It’s really simple to make, much like how one would make rice. Let’s see how this meal was put together.
