This chicken couscous is one of my all time favorite dishes. It’s so incredibly easy to make and the perfect dish when you are cooking for a large group of people. Therefore I love making this chicken couscous when I have friends of.

The combination of the sweet dates and the bitter coriander is super tasty and the cumin adds some additional oriental flavor to the chicken. I get so many compliments on this meal and I enjoy making it as it only requires a small amount of ingredients and is really quick and easy. This dish is always a great success!
