Middle eastern type tomato chicken stuff... or something like that

This was something that I made the other day trying to use up the chicken and couscous that I had, and it turned out really well for such a simple recipe.
Chicken in a tomato and turmeric sauce with vegetables and couscous.

Prep time: 3-5 min Cook time 8-15 min Serves 2

1 chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces.
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
2 tbsp curry seasoning or 1 tbsp each of coriander and turmeric (you can fiddle around with the spices)
2 tsp to 1 tbsp of garlic powder
1 pound of fresh or frozen veggies, cooked (I used broccoli) 
1 cup of couscous 
1 1/2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth (water will work if need be)
salt and pepper if you used tomatoes and broth without salt

Bring the broth to a boil. Add in the couscous, cover and turn to low cooking for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, fluff the couscous, cover and let sit for another 10 minutes.
Cook the chicken breast in a bit of oil in a pan. Add in the tomatoes (with the juice) and the seasoning. Let that heat up. You can cover it and let it cook on low for a bit to let the spices integrate more if you would like. Put down the couscous first, then the veggies, and then the chicken and tomatoes layered on your plate. Now you have dinner for two.
