Habanero and lime chicken cous cous

More often than not us hot sauce fans tend to assign sauces to meals rather than basing meals around a sauce, but that's not always the case.  Sometimes I try a sauce and immediately my mind starts trying to think up a recipe to make the most of said sauce.  Such a thing happened when I first tried the Habanero and Lime sauce made by East Coast Chilli Company, but until today no opportunity to put it into action had presented itself.

As I sat pondering lunch today a moment of inspiration took me, and I cobbled together a meal that should compliment the Habanero and Lime sauce perfect.  This is a leftovers meal, and here's what I diced and chucked in with some cous cous:
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Diced celery
  • Diced cucumber
  • Diced chorizo
  • Diced chicken
Now this should have been a sublime and light citrus-infused summery lovely lunch.  I say 'should have been' because in my haste I didn't read the label on the bottle I grabbed properly and accidentally put some 'Extra Hot Habanero and Naga Sauce' (also by East Coast Chilli Company) sauce into the mix.  So instead of a light easy-going lunch I've created something quite different... Still good though!
