Recipe Ingredients for Moroccan Chicken and Couscous Soup

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 onion, chopped
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4), cut into approximately 1 1/2-by-1/4-inch strips
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 sweet potato (about 1/2 pound), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
1 zucchini, quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
3/4 cup tomato puree
1 quart water
2 cups chicken broth or homemade stock
1/2 cup couscous
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley

Recipe Directions for Moroccan Chicken and Couscous Soup

  1. In a large pot, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.

  2. Increase the heat to moderately high. Add the chicken, cayenne, cumin, salt, and pepper to the pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.

  3. Stir in the sweet potato, zucchini, tomato puree, water, and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
