Description

A wonderful 30-minute healthy couscous recipe that encourages you to use up whatever is in your pantry. Flavoured with lemon, saffron and filled with Moroccan-inspired grilled chicken.

Ingredients

  • 750 milliliters Chicken Stock
  • 1 pinch Saffron
  • 1  Lemon, Zested
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 500 grams Couscous
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Coriander
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 500 grams Chicken Thighs
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil, Divided
  • 150 grams Sweet Potato, Diced Into Small Cubes
  • 1  Medium To Large Carrot, Peeled And Diced Into Small Cubes
  • 150 grams Frozen Peas
  • 100 grams Sultanas
  • 50 grams Feta Cheese, Crumbled
  • 30 grams Fresh Spinach
  • 10 grams Fresh Parsley, Chopped

Preparation

Add chicken stock, saffron, lemon zest and lemon juice in a large pot and bring to a boil. As soon as the stock starts boiling, turn heat off. Add couscous and mix through the hot stock. Place a lid over the pot and let the couscous absorb the stock and cook for 10 minutes.

Mix spiced ground cumin, ground ginger, ground turmeric, ground coriander, paprika, salt and pepper together and then rub the Moroccan spice mix over chicken thighs along with half the vegetable oil.

Preheat a griddle pan over high heat (turn the fans on and/or open the windows) for about 1–2 minutes. Once the griddle pan is nice and hot, place chicken thighs in the pan, making sure they are flattened out. Grill for 3 to 3 1/2 minutes on each side until cooked through. Transfer the chicken thighs onto a clean board, then cut them into cubes.

Preheat a wok over medium heat, then add remaining vegetable oil. Add sweet potato and carrots, fry for about half a minute, then place a lid on top of the wok and let vegetables cook for 2 minutes.

Take the lid off and add peas. Put the lid back on and cook the vegetables for another minute and then turn heat off.

Add couscous, chicken, sultanas, feta cheese and mix thoroughly. Then add spinach and parsley and mix through again! Serve and enjoy.
