Couscous with Chicken Stew

Couscous – the food so nice they named it twice.

Couscous ( /ˈkʊskʊs/ or /ˈkuːskuːs/) (Berber: Seksu) is a Berber pasta dish of semolina traditionally served with a meat or vegetable stew spooned over it. Couscous is a staple food throughout Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and west of Libya. (Wikipedia)

The first time I ate couscous was at the Alliance Francaise in Singapore during the Couscous festival with my beloved.

This couscous was prepared in a large deep non-stick pan over a medium fire. Add butter and salt to taste.

There you have it, Chicken Couscous. I like this Mediterranean dish with it’s North African and French influence.

The kids and I love it! It is so delicious that I declared we’ll have a couscous day every month. Thanks to my lovely wife.

Bon Appetit!
