This satisfying yet superhealthy recipe is all cooked in one pan for minimum washing up

Serves 4
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins


1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion , thinly sliced
200g chicken breasts , diced
good chunk fresh root ginger
1-2 tbsp harissa paste , plus extra to serve
10 dried apricots
220g can chickpeas , rinsed and drained
200g couscous
200ml hot chicken stock
handful coriander , chopped, to serve 


Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion for 1-2 mins just until softened. Add the chicken and fry for 7-10 mins until cooked through and the onions have turned golden. Grate over the ginger, stir through the harissa to coat everything and cook for 1 min more.

Tip in the apricots, chickpeas and couscous, then pour over the stock and stir once. Cover with a lid or tightly cover the pan with foil and leave for about 5 mins until the couscous has soaked up all the stock and is soft.

Fluff up the couscous with a fork and scatter over the coriander to serve. Serve with extra harissa, if you like.
