Moroccan Chicken With Pistachio Couscous

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This is another simple, easy and quick meal to put together, it is a good mid week, no fuss meal, that can be on the table in about 35 Min's. This recipe serves 4 but can be halved if just making for 2. I made this with chicken breasts coated them in the spice mixture, cooked them and then sliced thickly, but you could also use tenders or thigh fillets instead. Feel free to adjust spice quantaties to suit your personal tastes.

Absolutely devine meal and thoroughly enjoyed by my husband and I. Quick and easy to prepare and cook. I used chicken thighs as I didn't have breasts available. Made for Recipe Swap June 2009.

Impressive and delish! I wouldn't change a thing. I added extra cilantro and raisins, but other than that I made it your way. Thanks for a quick, healthy and beautiful meal.
