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.


    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.

Patrick - Nov 22, 2019

Bit too much going on

Paula - Nov 21, 2019

I wouldn’t grill the lemon next time but how delicious was this one?!

Jean - Nov 19, 2019

This is really delicious, I used a preserved lemon finally chopped and added to the couscous as I didn’t have a fresh lemon.

Deborah - Nov 17, 2019

Lovely sweetness but not cloying. Three big platefuls easily. Nice change to have couscous.

Chris - Nov 13, 2019

Not bad but didn’t feel special at all. Underwhelmed

Keren - Nov 13, 2019

Tasty but too much couscous and not sure if the pomegranate actually added anything to the dish.

Mikhail - Nov 09, 2019

Absolutely marvelous - we would rate it as 6 stars, but there is only 5. And optional ingredients aren't optional whatsoever

Catherine - Oct 26, 2019

Tasty marinade for the chicken but the pot for the couscous was very unpleasant

haydn - Oct 23, 2019

Chicken tasty. Had it with cous cous which boring

Alicia - Oct 22, 2019

Replaced the couscous with rice , it’s true the pomegranate add a nice touch to the dish

Glynn - Oct 22, 2019


Shaun - Oct 19, 2019

Nice flavours.

Linda - Oct 16, 2019

Loved the chicken with squeeze of the lemons drizzled over. But didn't like the taste of thec3rd pot that you soak the rice in. I had to discard the couscous. I tasted the chicken and it was lovely. Even though I didn't like the 3rd pot I shall buy again for the 1st and 2nd pots alone. Especially if you leave the chicken to soak in the marinade for awhile, the longer soaking the better the taste. Knocks spots off any Indian you'd have . 10/10

Kristina - Oct 14, 2019

Used rice instead of couscous but it was delicious

Blandine - Oct 13, 2019

Better with lamb

Nice would choose again

Laura - Oct 13, 2019

Vile no one ate it.

Sonia - Oct 09, 2019

I changed the chicken and used duck instead.....shouldn't have done that it wasn't the best dish and properbly wouldn't get it again

MATTHEW - Oct 08, 2019

Don't need quinoa again!

Lindsey - Oct 08, 2019

Too sweet

Martin - Oct 04, 2019

Pleasant enough, but neither of us is a huge couscous fan and it wasn't really anything special.

Nina - Oct 01, 2019

Too sweet for me, but it’s personal taste some people might like it sweet

Joanne - Sep 29, 2019

Not for us

Linda - Sep 24, 2019

Not a favourite of ours.

Sam - Sep 23, 2019

Delicious ????

Sam - Sep 23, 2019

Delicious ????

Karen - Sep 20, 2019

Third time with this one and it’s still a firm favourite tip: make sure you don’t add too much water .

Jackie - Sep 17, 2019

Not a favourite

Simon - Sep 09, 2019

Swapped out the sultanas with cranberries and added apricot to the quinoa whole meal was well received by all

Mark - Aug 30, 2019

I'll eat it again - looked nothing like the photo though...

Sarah - Aug 30, 2019

I say this about pretty much all the dishes, but I love this. It's the ONLY dish my partner will even entertain the idea of couscous for. Don't be tempted to miss out on stirring the optional mint through the couscous, it's totally worth it.

Alice - Aug 28, 2019

Really tasty. The sweet molasses sauce and the savoury couscous worked well together.

Sally - Aug 22, 2019

Disappointed in this, not enough spice , not heat please just needs more flavour

Siobhan - Aug 18, 2019

Very nice authentic tasting dish!

Siobhan - Aug 18, 2019

Very good, authentic tasting dish.

Terri - Aug 17, 2019

I thought it was ok, but my partner hated it. On the sweet side so if you don’t like fruity foods don’t bother. Lacking a bit of depth of flavour

Jack - Aug 16, 2019

Really different to any other dish. Enjoyed

Sarah - Aug 09, 2019

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got this one but my goodness it did not disappoint. I absolutely loved it. So flavourful

Tracey - Aug 07, 2019

Very nice, tastes better than it looks

Elly May - Aug 06, 2019

Not really a pad thai but not bad.

Paula - Aug 04, 2019

Unusual combination of flavours with cous cous, pomegranate and chicken but it works. Light and refreshing meal.

Tammy - Aug 03, 2019

A completely different dish to my usual. Very light and tasty. The pomegranate adds a lovely fresh touch to the dish .
