A warming and more-ish dish where pomegranate molasses and earthy Ras el Hanout come together to give a classic Moroccan flavour to the spiced chicken. The caramelised red onions add a lovely texture and sweetness to it and the couscous soaks up all the lovely juices. Grilling lemons like this offers a great roasted flavour, perfect if you can't  find any preserved lemons!

Our 25 minute recipe

  1. Prep the chicken

    Mix the sultanas and couscous (if using) in a heat-proof bowl.

    Put the RAS EL HANOUT and the POMEGRANATE MOLASSES in a large bowl, then add the chicken and mix well.

    Turn the grill onto medium high heat and grill the lemon wedges on a baking tray for 8 mins, or until the edges brown. Meanwhile, do step 2. 

  2. Cook the chicken

    Heat a little oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat and fry the onion for 5 mins. Then add 100ml water to help it caramelise and stir until the water has evaporated.

    Add the chicken and cook for 3 mins, then add 100ml more water.

    Bring it to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 6-8 mins, stirring occasionally. (The liquid should reduce by half.) Meanwhile, continue with step 3. 

  3. Cook the grains

    Boil the kettle, then mix 250ml of boiling water with the HARISSA CHICKEN STOCK and pour it over the couscous, making sure it just covers the top of the grains. Then cover it with a plate or cling-film and leave to soak for 5 mins.

    (If using quinoa for a gluten-free dish, cook the quinoa on the hob as per packet instructions, using your Harissa Chicken Stock in the suggested amount of boiling water.) 

  4. Serve!

    Remove the cover from the couscous and fluff it up with a fork. Mix the optional mint leaves through the couscous and squeeze the grilled lemon over it. Serve with the chicken and a lemon wedge on the side with pomegranate seeds scattered.

Chicken was soooo delicious! Although I added garlic granules to the couscous with salt pepper to make it tasty. Otherwise that part would’ve bland.
