Very quick. Very cheap.  Very yummy.

Adapted from 101cookbooks.com

1-2 chicken breasts, cut into tiny cubes
1 apple, cut into small chunks
4 tbsp butter
1/2 onion, chopped, or 3 green onions
1 cup couscous
1 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp salt
dash of cayenne pepper
dash of cinnamon

In pan, melt 3 tbsp butter. Add curry powder and stir for a minute until mixture gets fragrant. Add the apples and stir to coat, cooking for about a minute. Add the chicken chunks, a couple of pinches of salt, and stir to mix well with the apples. Cook, covered, for about 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked. Sprinkle with cayenne and cinnamon to taste, and remove to a plate, cover, and keep warm. In the same pan, add the remaining tbsp butter and the onions, and cook until soft. Add 1 3/4 cups water and salt, bring to a boil, and add the couscous. Cover and remove from heat. After about 5 minutes, fluff with a fork and then scoop into a bowl, topping with the apple and chicken mixture. Season to taste with cinnamon and cayenne.

Optional: top with toasted walnuts, mint leaves, or fresh cilantro.
