‘One Dish’ Moroccan Chicken & Couscous

Let the oven do all the hard work! Cook the casserole and then simply sprinkle over the couscous for an easy all in one meal that meets our everyday criteria.

Method

1.Preheat oven to 180° c. Make a few cuts in the chicken flesh.

 

2.Mix together ginger, garlic, coriander, paprika, cumin seeds and oil to make a paste. Rub the paste over the surface of the chicken. Place chicken in a casserole dish. Add chopped onion. Pour over chicken stock. Add apricots and Wattie’s Chickpeas*.  Cover.

 

3.Place casserole in the oven and cook for 1 hour. Remove from the oven. Sprinkle the couscous over the chicken and stir into the sauce. Cover. Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes to allow the couscous to absorb the sauce.

 

4.Serve garnished with fresh coriander leaves and a spoonful of unsweetened Greek-style yoghurt if wished.
