    Units: US | Metric

    Spice blend

    Couscous

    Condiments

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan, in a slow stream, and add smashed garlic. Season the chicken with seasoning blend. Scatter chicken around the pan in an even layer. Cook chicken pieces 2 minutes on each side to brown, then add the onions, prunes, raisins and stock. Mix spices in a small dish and scatter over the pot. Cover and reduce to moderate heat. Cook 7 or 8 minutes, remove the lid and stir.
    2. 2
      To prepare the couscous, bring chicken stock to a boil. Add couscous, extra-virgin olive oil and scallions and remove the couscous from the stove immediately. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff the couscous with a fork.
    3. 3
      Uncover chicken and cook another 2 to 3 minutes to thicken slightly. Adjust the seasoning, to taste, and serve chicken on a bed of couscous. Garnish with chopped cilantro and scallions. Serve with chutney.

      This dish is sooo delicious! It is flavorful and the combination of the spices along with the golden raisins and prunes really makes this dish. The only change I made was to use skinless, bone-in chicken thighs and drumsticks vs. cubed chicken breasts. The meat was really moist and tender. Will definitely make this dish again! Made for the African Recipe Tag, November, 2013.

      I left this recipe "as is"--and it was delicious! My husband and I were trying to clean out our pantry a bit, and we had no idea we could make such a unique dish with what we thought was a crazy hodge-podge of stuff! This isn't just a "spring cleaning" dish--it's going into regular rotation as an original, easy to cook, delicious favorite. Thank you SO much for posting it.

      Excellent flavors. After the main cooking process I still had a *lot* of liquid in the pan. I just added 1/4 cup of whole wheat couscous (I made 2 servings) to the cooking pan with everything else, stirred and let it sit off the heat for 5 mins. It's not as pretty as Pat's but it worked for me :D. Very simple to make and it's a most pleasing dinner.
