Title: Chicken couscous stew
Categories: Pastanoodle, Poultry, Soups & ste
Yield: 6 Servings
1 Whole boneless skinless
1 1/2 tb Vegetable oil
1 md Onion; cut into pieces and
15 oz Chickpeas; canned, drained
14 1/2 oz Whole canned tomatoes;
2 md Zucchini; thick sliced, then
-quarter the slices, about 3
-to 4 cups
1/2 ts Garlic powder
1/2 ts Salt; to taste
1/2 ts Pepper; to taste
1/4 c Golden raisins
3/4 c Low sodium chicken broth
2 tb Dried parsley
1 1/2 ts Ground cumin
1/4 ts Ground turmeric
1/4 ts Ground cinnamon
1/4 ts Ground red pepper
3 c Cooked couscous
Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Measure vegetable oil into a
10-inch skillet; heat until hot. Add chicken to skillet and cook
until it begins to brown. Add onion to skillet and cook until chicken
is browned and onion is translucent.
Add remaining ingredients except couscous. Bring to a simmer and lower
heat. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Add couscous and taste to correct
seasoning. Continue heating until couscous is thoroughly heated.
Makes about 5 servings, 1 to 1 1/2 cups each.
May also serve the couscous with the stew over it on individual
plates. I suggest cutting back on the couscous next time.
This recipe is a desperate attempt to recreate a recipe from an early
Weight Watchers Magazine (probably early 1980's) that I used to make
and lost when I moved. It's not quite the same, but not too bad.
