We’ve made it out of the “casserole phase” of the pandemic, and now we’re trying to eat a little lighter. Plus we just got an Always Pan from Our Place, so we were itching to make a one-pot meal with it. This dish hit the spot – it’s tasty, filling and low calorie (we peg this at about 260 calories a serving for the chicken version, a bit less for vegan version). We were surprised how easy, fast and yummy it was ~ enjoy!

  1. Healthy and easy! I was out of couscous and served it over quinoa for half my family and with crusty bread for the other half. The bread was the favorite, but both were good! The arugula added a nice flavor and the spice mix is excellent!
