Try The World- Moroccan Chicken and Couscous

So I recently signed up for Try the World http://www.trytheworld.com/ It is one of those boxes delivered straight to your door. It is pretty awesome. Every 2 months they send you a box of 5-6 small samples from a different country. If you LOVE something, you can buy the bigger version (or try to copy it and make your own). This month it was Marrakesh. Pretty awesome.

So the first thing I decided to make was a Moroccan Chicken. I used these 3 ingredients, plus chicken thighs and salt and pepper…049

I patted the Kefta Rub by Villa Jerada (mix of Cumin, Paprika, Pepper, Mint, Coriander, Cilantro, and Cinnamon) on the chicken thighs. Then I cooked the chicken in a cast iron skillet for 45 minutes. These were actually pretty thick, so I ended up cooking them for almost an hour. In the last 10 minutes, I took out the chicken and poured the Couscous sauce in the pan. I put the chicken back in and cooked it together for the last 10 minutes. I plated the chicken and sauce over the couscous. 035

I served with a side of broccoli and crusty bread. Everyone LOVED the dinner! We all loved the rub…a little bit goes a long way, so I have lots left for a couple more recipes =)

Also got these gems…Palmiers Pure Beurre…Um, that just means a sweet treat made out of flour, butter, sugar, and salt. PERFECTION!!!
