    Moroccan Chicken and Cous Cous
    I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.

    Serves 4
    Syn Value on EE (for whole recipe):0 (or a quater if using olive oil!!!)

    Ingredients
    4 medium chicken breasts
    Fry Light (or 1tbsp olive oil at 2syns)
    1 medium onion sliced thickly
    1 pepper, de-seeded and sliced
    2 medium carrots, cut into thick sticks
    250g potatoes, cut into thick chunks
    1 stick of celery, large and thickly sliced
    1/2 tsp tumeric
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp coriander
    450ml fresh chicken stock
    1 portion bay leaf
    1 lemon
    1 tbsp parsley (or more coriander)
    250g cous cous
    salt and pepper

    - Season the chicken lightly. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan and brown the chicken quickly. Remove from the heat and stir in the chunky vegetables. Add 1 tbsp of water and then cover the pan. Cook gently for 5 minutes until softened, shaking the pan occasionally.

    - Stir in the spices, except the bay leaf. Cook for 2 minutes and then add the leaf. Stir in the stock and add the zest of the lemon.

    - Bring the stock to the boil, then season and cover. Simmer gently for about 45 minutes, until the meat is tender. Stir in the lemon juice.

    - Meanwhile, soak and steam the cous cous according to the packet.

    Serve the contents of the pan with the cous cous.

    I found the cous cous pretty bland when I did this and like there was too much...make it up with a stock cube and add anything you might want to liven it up a bit!
