Cinnamon Chicken With Couscous and Dried Fruit
30 mins (prep 5, cooking 25)
13 ingredients
4 servings
I recently discovered this on Epicurious and I'm in love! I think I could have this every night for a week. It's easy and fast enough to do when you get home from work too. I have been having it with some peas to add some green to the plate and iced mint tea. I am posting the original recipe but here are the comments of another user. I have been useing these recomendations: "Natalie from San Francisco, CA on 05/23/06 I love this recipe. One change I make is to use chicken thighs only, cook (boil in stock or saute) until they are about 95% done and then shred them when cool. I add the chicken at the last minute with the other ingredients so it finishes cooking in a couple of minutes. I find the dish is quicker, uses less oil and the spices get more evenly distributed. I usually use a sweeter dried fruit, like prunes or raisins, and a tart fruit, like apricots or cranberries. I've also made this dish with the larger size couscous (could be harder to find) as well as the traditional couscous and I find that the texture of the larger couscous is a nice addition."
