Recipe Ingredients for Moroccan Chicken

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 3/4 cups tomatoes
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
200 g chicken breast
1 cup zucchini, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
6 tablespoons couscous
2/3 cup water

Recipe Directions for Moroccan Chicken

  1. So that everything is ready at the same time, start the couscous while the chicken is simmering; then keep the couscous covered until ready to serve.

  2. In a large (10-inch) skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat. Add garlic; cook until starting to soften, about 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, ginger, teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, half the cilantro, and 2 tablespoons water.

  3. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated but is still somewhat saucy, 6 to 8 minutes.

  4. Stir in honey; add chicken and zucchini. Return to a simmer; cover. Cook, turning once, until chicken is cooked through and zucchini is tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in remaining cilantro. Serve over couscous (below).

  5. Couscous

  6. In a small saucepan, bring 2/3 cup water to a boil. Stir in couscous, season with salt.

  7. Remove from heat; cover, and let stand until water has been absorbed, about 5 minutes. Before serving, fluff with a fork
