  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 medium onions, cut into wedges

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes, undrained

  • 1 15 ounce can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained

  • 1 ½ cup water

  • ½ cup raisins

  • cup small pitted ripe olives

  • 3 cup hot cooked couscous

  1. In a shallow bowl combine flour, coriander, cumin, paprika, salt, and cinnamon. Coat chicken with the flour mixture; set aside.

  2. In a 4-quart Dutch oven cook onions and garlic in hot oil over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until tender. Remove from Dutch oven, reserving oil in pan. Add chicken to pan, half at a time. Cook quickly until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Return all chicken and the onion mixture to pan. Add tomatoes, garbanzo beans, the water, raisins, and olives. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until chicken is tender, stirring occasionally. Serve over couscous. Sprinkle with cilantro.
