If you have not tried couscous, here is your chance! A staple of northern Africa, couscous is a wonderful, versatile pasta that goes well when paired with vegetables or meats, but can also be eaten alone with butter. This slow cooker recipe makes a juicy, tasty chicken which is served with a flavorful orange, plum, and anise sauce.
3/4 cup plum sauce
1/3 cup orange juice
1/4 cup orange marmalade
2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
1/4 teaspoon anise seeds, crushed
2-1/2 to 2-3/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
2-1/4 cups water
1 tablespoon orange marmalade
1 10-ounce package quick-cooking couscous
1/4 teaspoon salt
Orange peel strips and orange slices (optional)
1. For sauce, in a small bowl combine plum sauce, orange juice, the 1/4 cup orange marmalade, tapioca, and anise seeds. Place chicken in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Pour sauce over chicken.
2. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Remove chicken; keep warm. Skim fat from sauce.
3. In a medium saucepan bring water and the 1 tablespoon orange marmalade to boiling; remove from heat. Stir in couscous and salt. Cover; let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork just before serving. Serve chicken and sauce with couscous. If desired, garnish chicken with orange peel strips and couscous with orange slices. Makes 6 servings.
