Curry Chicken with Cous Cous

Experience the Flavors of India with Curry Chicken and Colorful Cous Cous

Indian food is filled with bright colors, unique flavors, and intriguing history.

To indulge in the flavors of this exotic dish, you don't need to travel across the Indian Ocean. Let BistroMD bring the flavors of India to your door with our curry chicken and tri-colored cous cous!

It is a known fact that India's culinary masters use a variety of exotic spices, and unique side dishes to create great-tasting cuisine. One of the most flavorful ingredients used to create artful Indian cuisine is curry.

Curry is a blend of various spices that is a staple in Indian food culture. Most curry is a blend of several different types of spices, including turmeric, cumin, coriander, and red pepper.

To create such a powerful flavor that bursts through each bite of chicken, our chefs create a special marinade that includes garlic, black pepper, and lemon juice. The speckles of black pepper in the marinade give it a special kick, which blends in nicely with the rich flavor of the garlic, and the tanginess of the lemon juice.

The chicken is then slowly marinated, while curry powder is roasted in the oven to bring out the depth of its bold spices. Once the curry is finished roasting, it is combined with some light coconut milk, and a dash of cilantro. The smooth texture of the coconut milk, combined with its sweet taste, create a balance of sweet and spice that is oh, so indulgently nice!

The tri-colored cous cous is what makes our curry chicken dish soar.

Cous cous has been a staple in North African cuisine for thousands of years. Most cous cous is made from semolina flour, but different cultures season their cous cous with different spices. For example, Tahitians are known for seasoning their cous cous with a special chili spice called harissa. Algerians use tomatoes for their cous cous, and Moroccans kick up their cous cous with saffron.

The cous cous used in our curry chicken dish is a combination of spinach, tomato, and semolina cous cous. The bold green color of the spinach, combined with the vibrant red color of the tomato, put a splash of color into our cous cous that is unlike anything you have ever seen, or tasted. Our cous cous is certain to brighten your day with its bold colors and fantastic flavor.

To add more color to the mix, our chefs pair our beautiful curry chicken and vibrant cous cous with a palette of perfectly sliced julienne carrots. The smooth texture of the carrots, combined with the rich flavor of the cous cous, and the spice of our curry chicken, will make you feel like you are enjoying an authentic meal, right in the heart of India!

Thai Curry Chicken

Take a Trip to Thailand with Our Thai Curry Chicken

Take a step into the Orient, and delight in the taste of Asia with BistroMD's healthy and delicious version of Thai curry chicken.

Our chefs have worked hard in the kitchen to bring you the traditional flavors of Thai curry chicken, mixed with a few "healthier" ingredients.

Our version of this Thai favorite starts with lean, tender chunks of chicken, drizzled in a coconut curry sauce that gives our chicken a subtle, but delicious flavor.

The chicken is then covered with hints of ginger and lemongrass which will make you feel like you are having dinner in the Orient - a land of Epicurean delight! The chicken is also drizzled in a unique curry that will light your tastebuds with a mildly spicy, but enticing flavor.

In addition to curry on your chicken, you can also enjoy the sensation of nips of cilantro and turmeric that create a blend of tantalizing flavors that will send you blazing to the East.

Hold on to your chopsticks, as exotic edamame, partnered with tender sugar snap peas and baby corn, are joined by red pepper and water chestnuts.

All of these wonderful ingredients are beautifully served next to perfectly moist white rice.

All that's left to do is to dig into this sensational Asian gourmet creation!
