Chicken Couscous

This is a family favorite at our house! I haven't tried it here yet, but I've managed to find all the ingredients, so I will let you know how it turns out. It's nice and light but filling enough for a main course.

Half of a roasted chicken, shredded
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups corn, frozen or fresh off the cob
1 1/2 cups couscous, uncooked
1 cup tomatoes chopped
1/2 cup peppers, green, red or orange
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup lime juice (Use fresh it is so much better)
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (I just shake in a couple of drops of sauce)
2-3 green onions chopped

Saute turkey or chicken breasts, with salt and pepper to taste (I just shred 1/2 of a Costco roasted chicken), set aside.
Place broth in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add corn to pan and boil for 3 minutes if using frozen corn. Otherwise remove from heat and add couscous. Cover and let sit 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork. Combine meat and couscous with remaining ingredients in a bowl and toss well. Yields 6 meal size servings of 1 2/3 cups.
