Instructions

Roast your Carrots
1

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C.

c) Pop the carrots onto a baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then scatter over the cumin. Toss to coat then spread out in a single layer.
d) When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until soft and golden, 15-16 mins. Turn halfway through.

Cook the Couscous

a) While the carrots roast, pour the water for the couscous (see ingredients for amount) and half the chicken stock paste into a saucepan and bring to the boil..
b) When boiling, remove from the heat, stir in the couscous and pop a lid on the pan.
c) Leave to the side for 8-10 mins or until ready to serve.

Fry the Chicken

a) Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. When hot, add the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook until browned all over, 5-6 mins. Turn occasionally. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
b) Meanwhile, roughly chop the prunes. Roughly chop the dill (stalks and all).
c) Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Add the Flavours
