Fragrant Moroccan Couscous
I love this recipe. It is the epitome of simple good food that can be whipped up in a very short space of time. When served with the Crispy Skinned Chicken, I am pretty sure you will hear no complaints, perhaps only cries for more!
This dish is great for all sorts of other grilled or roasted proteins, so don’t get stuck on just the chicken we are suggesting. Sort yourself some amazing salmon, beef, steak, pork ribs, or any fish or meat for that matter. YUM. Easy. And quick...did I mention that?
