DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pan (large enough to hold the chicken), fry the onion and garlic in the olive oil until onion becomes soft and translucent.
  • Put in the chicken and pour 4-1/2 cups of water (it won't be sufficient to cover). Add spices.
  • Cover and simmer for 1 - 1-1/2 hours so chicken is so tender it's falling off the bone, turning once halfway through.
  • Take out the chicken and remove skin and bones. Cut into small pieces.
  • Bring the sauce to a boil and add lemon juice.
  • Throw in the couscous. Cook for approximately 8 minutes (until tender). (you can add 1 cup of boiling water if necessary during this time)
  • Stir in the butter and place the chicken pieces back in the pan.
  • Heat through before serving.
