Ingredients

1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 can (19 oz/540 mL) diced tomatoes
4 cups (1 L) fresh or frozen cauliflower florets, (thawed and drained if frozen)
1 cup (250 mL) drained rinsed, canned chickpeas
1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) ground cumin
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cinnamon
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tsp (10 mL) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (125 mL) 10 % cream
1 tbsp (15 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup (250 mL) whole wheat couscous
1/2 tsp (2 mL) grated lemon zest
2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh coriander or 
fresh parsley

Preparation

Heat a large, deep nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Melt butter and brown chicken, turning once, for about 3 min per side. Stir in tomatoes, cauliflower, chick peas, 1 tsp (5 mL) cumin, cinnamon. Add salt and pepper to taste; bring to a boil.

Whisk flour into cream and stir into skillet; reduce heat and simmer covered, stirring occasionally, for about 7 min or until chicken is no longer pink inside and sauce is slightly thickened. Stir in lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, in a small covered saucepan, bring 2 cups (500 mL) water to a boil over high heat; stir in couscous, lemon zest and remaining cumin. Remove from heat, cover and let stand until the water is absorbed, about 5 min. Fluff with fork.

Divide couscous among 4 serving plates or bowls; spoon chicken mixture on top. Sprinkle with fresh coriander.

Tips

Any leftovers can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave oven on Medium (50%) power until hot.

For a quick lunch idea, combine remaining chick peas with diced Canadian Gouda cheese, shredded carrot and sliced green onion. Sprinkle with lemon juice and olive oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.

For the Adventurous: Stir in1/3 cup (80 mL) raisins and/or dried apricots, with the cream. Sprinkle 2 tbsp (30 mL) shelled pistachios on top with fresh coriander.
