Delicious one pan Thai peanut chicken couscous packed with protein and a boost of colorful veggies. This cozy chicken couscous recipe is filled with Thai flavors thanks to a rich and creamy peanut sauce made with coconut milk, fresh ginger, soy sauce, garlic and creamy peanut butter. Options to add a kick of heat if you love spice!
Garnish with chopped honey-roasted peanuts, green onion, and cilantro. Serves 4.
To make gluten free: I think this recipe would work okay using white basmati rice or quinoa in place of the couscous, but please note that I have not tested it this way. Using pearl couscous really adds a wonderful texture that can't be replicated with another grain. Please note that you'd likely need much less quinoa (probably 3/4 cup) if you choose to replace it, and any other grains may have different cooking times.
To make vegetarian/vegan: feel free to swap the chicken for chickpeas or tofu to keep this dish vegetarian and/or vegan.
