a) Preheat your oven to 220°C.
b) Trim the carrot, then slice into 1cm thick rounds (no need to peel).
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.


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.


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).


a) Stir the garlic, tomato puree and harissa paste into the chicken. Cook for 1 min more.
b) Add the water for the sauce (see ingredients for amount), prunes and remaining chicken stock paste. Stir together and bring to a gentle simmer.
c) Cook until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked through, 6-8 mins. TIP: Add a splash of water if it's too thick. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.


a) While the stew simmers, mix the yoghurt with half the dill in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
b) Carefully fluff up the couscous with a fork, then stir through the remaining dill and season to taste.
