A zesty blend of spices, garlic, and fresh herbs, chermoula is a Moroccan spice traditionally used to season fish and meat. In this 15-minute recipe, Chef Jesse has marinaded the chicken in a delicious chermoula marinade and served it with a warming winter couscous salad packed with dried apricots, kale and coriander. Top with a good spoonful of homemade zaatar dressing for the final touch and you’re good to go.
