Moroccan Style Couscous

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Chef Nado

Always perfect tasting and easy to prepare. I tried several couscous recipes but was never happy with the ending result given the lack of flavor but now, I have customized my very own and I want to share it with you. Do not be intimidated by all the ingredients. I promise you it's easy! The fragrant aroma will definitely get you hungry even while cooking.

Delicious! I had to omit the raisins and chickpeas as I had none on hand, but it was delicious nevertheless. Tasted the sauce for flavour before adding the chicken as you suggested and decided to add just a little soy sauce to add some saltiness and flavour. Will definitely make again - well worth it - thank you.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In 1 tbsp of oil fry your garlic.
  2. Add spices and raisins cooking at low temperature to avoid the raisins from burning.
  3. Add your chicken broth combined with the tomato paste.
  4. Let your sauce boil for 10 minutes and taste to see whether or not you have sufficient flavor.
  5. Add in chicken thighs and cook for 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked.
  6. The last step is to add your vegetables and chickpeas. Cook until softened but not mushy.
  7. Serve on a bed of couscous along with harissa sauce if you like your dish to be spicy.
  8. Enjoy!
