4 servings (serving size: 2 chicken thighs and 1/4 cup tomato sauce)

Chicken thighs cooked in a smoky, acidic tomato sauce combine seamlessly with a sweet, nutty couscous to create a hearty North African—inspired meal. While the chicken simmers, prepare the couscous so both dishes will be ready at the same time.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients. Rub chicken thighs with spice mixture.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes. Turn chicken over; stir in tomatoes. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Uncover and cook 1 minute or until liquid is reduced by half. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.

Step 3

Serve with: Whole Wheat Couscous and Apricots

Delicious, I would also double the spices to enhance the flavor. Quick and easy to prepare, we served it over Basmati Rice.

We like spice so I doubled the spices for the spice rub. This was excellent and perfect with couscous and almonds.
