Step 1

Place vegetables and spices in large pot with chicken broth and juice from chickpeas and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 20-30 minutes until vegetables are tender.

In the meantime, rub chicken with a little salt and pepper and saute chicken cubes until cooked through. Add to vegetables and spices in last 10 minutes of cooking and prepare couscous.

In large saute pan, melt butter over medium heat and saute onion for about 3 minutes. Add chicken broth and increase heat to bring to a boil. When boiling, remove from heat and add couscous. Cover pan and allow couscous to absorb liquid for 10 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper, nuts, and raisin. Serve chicken and vegetables spooned over top of couscous.
