Moroccan Chicken with Pearl Couscous by Neha D'Souza

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken fillets
  • 100 grams pearl couscous
  • handful of green beans cut into little pieces
  • small chopped red onion
  • 2 little peppers cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 2 tablespoon Spice Kitchen Ras El Hanout
  • feta cheese
  • lemon juice
  • salt & pepper
  • rapeseed oil

Method:

  1. Cut chicken into cubes (the smaller the better) and marinate with salt, pepper and ras el hanout. You can add a drizzle of olive oil to the marinade just so it mixes well. Leave for at least 30 minutes
  2. Cook the pearl couscous as per the instructions on the pack.
  3. In a pan heat a tablespoon of oil. One hot add the garlic and straight after the chopped onions. Let this cook until the onions are golden brown. Check the onions do not burn.
  4. Add green beans to the pan and let it cook for 5 minutes before adding the peppers. Give the mixture a good stir and a minute later add the cooked couscous. Squeeze in juice of 1/4 lemon and add salt & pepper to taste. Stir the dish well and let it cook on a very low heat.
  5. In a separate pan heat two tablespoons of oil. Once hot,  add the chicken and cook until done. Keep turning it so it does cook evenly and flavours get mixed in.
  6. On a plate put some couscous first then top it with chicken. Now crumble some feta cheese on the top. The dish is ready to be served.

Using a combination of fresh and dry spices really do help keep the chicken tender and moist. Make sure to use chicken thighs as this cut is harder to dry out.

This recipe gives you baseline quantities for fresh ginger and chilli. After you make the first batch you can change the quantities to your own liking.

If you don’t have a BBQ simply bake in the oven!

Let's be real, lamb chops seriously bang! I prepared these luscious chops from @owtonbutchers by double marinating them for optimum flavour. You can use chops or cutlets for this recipe, but I find chops are meatier and therefore hold better with mash.
