Chicken Stew for Couscous

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by luvinlif2k

This Algerian recipe is served with couscous. Though the recipe calls for chicken you could substitute goat or lamb for the chicken. This is from one of my favorite books, Extending the Table.

I chose to use the optional ingredients and I have to say this is a very tasty dish. It is also easy to use and serves beautifully. Thank you luvinlif2k!
