Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 200g chicken breasts, diced
  • good chunk fresh root ginger
  • 1-2 tbsp harissa paste, plus extra to serve
  • 10 dried apricots
  • 220g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 200g couscous
  • 200ml hot chicken stock
  • handful coriander, chopped, to serve

Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion for 1-2 mins just until softened. Add the chicken and fry for 7-10 mins until cooked through and the onions have turned golden. Grate over the ginger, stir through the harissa to coat everything and cook for 1 min more.

  2. Tip in the apricots, chickpeas and couscous, then pour over the stock and stir once. Cover with a lid or tightly cover the pan with foil and leave for about 5 mins until the couscous has soaked up all the stock and is soft. Fluff up the couscous with a fork and scatter over the coriander to serve. Serve with extra harissa, if you like.
