  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of the chicken broth to a boil. Stir in couscous and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the olive oil. Turn off heat, cover, and let stand 10 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Stir in the chicken, season with pepper, and cook until no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove chicken from the skillet, and set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Stir in the jalapeno peppers and carrot, and saute about 2 minutes. Mix in the zucchini, green onions, ginger, and 1/4 cup chicken broth. Continue to cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, blend the remaining 1 cup chicken broth with curry powder, coriander, and cornstarch. Pour over the vegetables. Return chicken to the skillet. Continue cooking about 2 minutes until chicken is coated and the broth mixture begins to thicken. Serve over the couscous.

This is a great flavor-per-amount-of-prep-time dish! I will include this as one of the top meals I prepare on a regular cycle because of its simplicity, flavor and it's unique to most other dish...

Decent enough, but 1/2 cup jalapeno is too much. I like spicy food but the recipe as listed simply tastes of jalapeno and curry; all other flavors disappear beneath this assault. When I push...

Very good! Spicey. I would cut back on the peppers but beside that very good.

After reading some other reviews I was concerned it would be too spicy for our family so I replaced the jalapenos with some mild green chiles. It turned out very well but I will make it a littl...

Wow!!! This was outstanding! My husband raved about it many times. The diced jalepenos I used came from a jar labled "hot", so I only used 1/4 cup, which was perfect for us. Thanks so much f...
