Couscous with Chicken, Spinach, & Mushrooms

We interviewed a doula tonight and were nearly hypoglycemic by the time she left. I had meant to bake something for our time with her but ran out of time, so we were bad hosts AND starving. Needed dinner to be healthy, wholsome (to counteract the mass amounts of sugar we consumed while waiting for it) and ready pronto.

This recipe was perfect and will go into regular rotation FOR SURE! 15 mins start to finish.

I just discovered the site this is from and I love it - great healthy ideas. I love group blogs!

Couscous with Chicken, Spinach, & Mushrooms (Source: Pass The Beans Please, barely modified but the below reflects how I made it)
