Dinnertime Crunch: Jessica Seinfeld's Quick Chicken and Couscous
Our tasty and easy Dinnertime Crunch series continues with celebrity chefs and restaurateurs sharing their favorite 30-minute weeknight dinners that help Mom and Dad spend more time with the kids each night. Today's recipes come from Do It Delicious founder and mother of three, Jessica Seinfeld.
It's easy to turn to frozen chicken nuggets on a busy weeknight. They're quick, easy, and you know the kids will eat them. While Mom and Dad may enjoy the breaded childhood staple, we know we shouldn't be eating them, but who really has time to cook one meal for the kids and another for the adults? Jessica Seinfeld says it's easier than you think. The children's cookbook author (whose third cookbook, which is geared toward those who are terrified of cooking, is due out in Fall 2013) and mother of three says that it's just as easy to whip up a chicken and couscous meal that the entire family will love. "My family goes wild for this crispy-skinned chicken," Jessica said. "And for the couscous salad, you don't have to turn on the stove, which if you're busy or don't love to cook, is a nice feature!"
