Moroccan Chicken & Couscous

Moroccan and Egyptian Restaurants are far and few between here. Several of my favorite locations in town are no longer operating, but luckily, we do have a handful of good ones.


This Moroccan Chicken and Couscous recipe is a variation of one shared with me by a former co-worker from Egypt. Full of intense flavors, I loved her addition of garbanzo beans.
