Large Saucepan
Large Frying Pan


  • Boil a half-full kettle.
  • Meanwhile, drain the sweetcorn in a sieve.
  • Pour the water for the couscous (see pantry) and half the chicken stock paste into a saucepan. Bring to the boil.
  • Remove from the heat, stir in the couscous and cover. Leave to the side, 8-10 mins.
  • Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on high heat. 
  • Once hot, add the chicken and sweetcorn. Fry, 5-6 mins. Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and utensils after handling raw meat. Cook so there's no pink in the middle.
  • Next, stir in the tomato puree, chipotle paste (add less if you'd prefer things milder), remaining chicken stock paste, water and sugar for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts).
  • Bring to the boil, then lower the heat. Simmer, 3-4 mins.
  • Remove from the heat. Stir in the bbq sauce and butter (see pantry). Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Share the couscous and chicken stew between bowls.
  • Sprinkle over the crispy onions.



Step 2 MOD: If you’ve chosen to get diced chicken breast instead of thigh, cook the recipe in the same way.
