    Chicken Broth, 3 cups
    Cous cous, 1.5 cups
    Parsley, 1 tbsp
    Thyme, ground, 0.5 tsp
    Peas, frozen, 2 cups
    Green onion (spring onion), 0.5 cups
    Chicken Breast, no skin, 200 grams
    Lemon Juice, 40 mL (2 tbsp)
    Olive Oil, 2 tbsp
    Curry powder, 1 tsp
    Pine Nuts, 0.25 cup


In a medium size saucepan, bring the broth to a boil, add the couscous, parsley, and thyme and cook the mixture for 30 seconds. Remove the pan from the heat, cover it and let the couscous stand for 5 minutes.
If peas are fresh, steam them until just tender. (Do not cook frozen ones, just thaw them.) Place the peas in a large bowl, add the scallions, green pepper, chicken and raisins. Pour the hot couscous over the chicken mixture and toss to combine them well.
In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, curry, oil, black and red pepper. Pour this mixture over the couscous mixture and refrigerate for 1 hour. Sprinkle the salad with nuts before serving.
