Bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.

Poach chicken pieces in broth until cooked through and no longer pink, 2-5 minutes; remove to a plate. Toss chicken with 1 tsp. curry powder; set chicken aside.

Return broth to a boil. Add couscous, stirring quickly. Remove pan from heat; cover pan. Let couscous sit 5 minutes, then transfer it to a mixing bowl.
