    A flavourful chicken stew with vegetables served over couscous. This recipe was actually a real chicken contest winner! You can use any meat or veggies in this recipe, e.g. I have used zucchini, carrots, capsicum, and lamb and I find that works well.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 cup (190g) couscous
    • 1 tablespoon (20ml) vegetable oil
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 5 whole cloves, crushed
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground dried turmeric
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
    • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - chopped
    • 1 (400g) tin chick peas
    • 1 (400g) tin crushed tomatoes
    • 1L liquid chicken stock
    • 2 carrots, cut into 1cm pieces
    • 1 zucchini, cut into 1cm pieces
    • 1 pinch salt to taste
