Leon’s (not too) spicy chicken cous cous
One of the most delicious meals ever! this has been cooked in our house more than any other- and that’s saying something!
LEON (NOT TOO) SPICY CHICKEN COUS COUS
I have got lots of firm favourites from it. I urge you to try this (not too) spicy chicken cous cous, as it is seriously delicious! I have really reduced the amount of oil and butter in this to make it work for Slimming World, but it’s still completely yummy!
I think one of the reasons I love this so much is that it was the first proper meal I ate after the birth of my first daughter and I was starving, and sleep-deprived and shellshocked and it just took all of that away- it’s such comfort food! The garlicky roast tomatoes, mixed with the spicy chicken, juicy raisins, crunchy sunflower seeds and lemon and herbs is just to die for!
The original Leon recipe uses pine-nuts rather than sunflower seeds, but I always substitute these as pine-nuts are so expensive and the sunflower seeds work perfectly.
