  • Paprika 1 tsp
  • Ground cumin 1 tsp
  • Cayenne pepper ¼ tsp
  • Ground ginger ½ tsp
  • Ground coriander ½ tsp
  • Ground cinnamon ¼ tsp
  • Lemon zest 1
  • Garlic, minced 5 cloves
  • Chicken thighs 8
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • Olive oil 1 tbsp
  • Yellow onion 1 large
  • All-purpose flour 2 tbsp
  • Chicken broth 1 ¾ cups
  • Honey 2 tbsp
  • Carrots, peeled 2-3
  • Green olives ½ cup
  • Chopped fresh cilantro leaves 2 tbsp

Combine the spices in a small bowl and set aside. Zest the lemon. Combine 1 teaspoon of the lemon zest with 1 minced garlic clove; set aside.
Season both sides of chicken pieces with 2 teaspoons salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Heat the oil in a large heavy-bottomed Dutch oven or pan over medium-high heat until beginning to smoke. Brown the chicken pieces skin side down in single layer until deep golden, about 5 minutes; using tongs, flip the chicken pieces over and brown the other side, about 4 minutes more. Transfer the chicken to a large plate; when cool enough to handle, peel off the skin and discard. Pour off and discard all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pan.
Reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until they have browned at the edges but still retain their shape, 5 to 7 minutes (add a few tablespoons of water now and then if the pan gets too dark). Add the remaining minced garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the spices and flour and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the broth, honey, remaining lemon zest, and ¼ teaspoon salt, scraping the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to loosen any browned bits. Add the chicken (with any accumulated juices) back in, reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the carrots, cover, and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the carrots are tender-crisp, about 10 minutes more.
Stir in the olives, reserved lemon zest-garlic mixture, cilantro, and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice; taste the sauce and adjust seasoning with salt, pepper, and more lemon juice, if desired. Serve with couscous.


  • Chicken, diced 450 gm
  • Olive oil 6 tbsp
  • Soup bones optional
  • Tomatoes 12
  • Chickpeas, soaked and peeled 2 handfuls
  • Dry green or brown lentils 4 handfuls
  • Onions, grated 2 large
  • Celery (with leaves), chopped 2 stalks
  • Parsley, finely chopped 2 small bunch
  • Coriander, finely chopped 2 small bunch
  • Salt 2 tbsp
  • Ginger 2 tbsp
  • Black pepper 3 tsp
  • Ground cinnamon 2 tsp
  • Turmeric 1 tsp
  • Tomato paste 6 tbsp
  • Uncooked rice OR broken vermicelli 6 tbsp
  • Flour 250 gm
  • Lemon wedges and cilantro (optional) for garnish

Soak the chickpeas overnight. The next day, drain and peel them.
Pick through the lentils to remove any stones and debris; set aside until ready to use.
Make tomatoes purée.
Grate the onion or process it to a thick pulp in a food processor.
Wash the celery and finely chop it. Set aside. Remove and discard large pieces of stem from the parsley and cilantro. Wash the parsley and cilantro and leave to drain thoroughly before chopping finely by hand or in a food processor. (The chopped herbs may be mixed together and frozen until needed.)
Make the Soup
In a pressure cooker or stock pot, brown the meat in the oil over medium heat. Add the soup bones, peeled chickpeas, pureed tomatoes, grated onion, spices, and 6 cups (1420 ml) of water. Bring to a boil, cover and cook with medium pressure for 25 minutes (or simmer for 50 to 60 minutes).
Add the lentils, tomato paste mixture, chopped herbs and 17 cups (4 litters) water. Bring to a boil and cover.
If planning to add rice, cook the soup with medium pressure for 30 minutes (or simmer for 60 minutes); add the rice, and continue cooking with pressure for another 15 minutes (or 30 minutes by simmering).
OR if planning to add broken vermicelli, cook the soup with pressure for 45 minutes (or simmer for 90 minutes) before stirring in the broken vermicelli.
