The Menu:

I firmly believe the host/hostess of the party should be able to relax and have fun at their own party. With that in mind, each of these recipes has only a few ingredients and some things, like dressing and sauces can be made ahead!

The Main Course!

We start with a healthy main course and a vegetable side: Sesame Apricot Chicken Kabobs with Grilled Asparagus. The sauce for the chicken can be made a day ahead and the asparagus takes 2 minutes to prep and 5 to grill!

A Super Simple Side!

Jeweled Moroccan Couscous only takes minutes to cook and is made in one pot so clean up is a snap! And when that apricot sesame sauce runs onto the couscous…just amazing!

  1. Awesome recipes! The chicken dish sounds delicious.. what I great idea to add apricots. I bet that adds lovely flavor to the chicken.
