Last weekend I was watching a show on The Food Network and saw this recipe. I made a few changes to it and you can find my recipe along with step by step pictures at the end of the post.

This recipe takes a bit of time with all the preparation and marinating times but the finished product is well worth the effort.

First you need to roast the garlic and make the paste to marinate the chicken. You do this by placing the garlic bulbs in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 F. Then you add all the ingredients into a food processor or blender. You then rub the paste on the chicken and let it marinate for 2-4 hours.

When making the couscous you first partially cook the grain then hold it to the side. In a pan you brown the chicken then use the pan to finish cooking the couscous.

For the final step you transfer the couscous to an oven safe dish and add the chicken. You then bake covered for 20-25 minutes then uncovered for 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is done. Enjoy!
