Why I Love This Recipe

I used to make this when I was a poor, useless student if I was trying to impress someone; It's cheap and easy but tastes quite impressive.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 Chicken breasts
1 tbs olive oil
Handful Ground Cumin seeds
Handful Ground Dried Coriander
1 tsp Salt & Pepper
Half a packet of cous cous
1 litre of chicken stock
I knob of butter
1 cup of sultanas
1 cup chopped dried apricots
¾ cup slivered almonds
Handful of fresh chopped mint
¾ cup plain yogurt
Sprig fresh coriander (garnish)


On a plate mix together the Cumin, Coriander, salt & pepper.

Slice Chicken breast into strips and coat the strips in the dry mix.

Fry Chicken gently until cooked through.

Place cous cous and butter into a large bowl, pour over Chicken stock until the cous cous is almost covered.

Whisk lightly with a fork and cover bowl with a tea towel.

Keep checking the cous cous, it may need more Chicken stock.

Whisk it with a fork at regular intervals.

When cous cous is soft and fluffy add the chopped apricots, sultanas and Almonds and stir through. Place cous cous in a bowl or plate.

Place chicken strips on top and serve with mint yogurt (add mint to yogurt), garnish with fresh coriander and Bob’s your uncle.
