Step 3

Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken thighs, skin-side down. Sear the skin, undisturbed for 3-4 min. It should be brown & crispy when you turn it over. Transfer the chicken to a plate.

Bell pepper (green)

Step 4

In the same pan, add sliced bell pepper & season with salt. Cook, stirring for 2 min.

Harissa (paste)
Pearl couscous

Step 5

Stir in harissa paste & honey. Add pearl couscous & broth, mixing until everything is well-combined. (If you choose to use regular couscous, wait until the next step to add it in.)

Step 6

Add back the chicken thighs & nestle them into the sauce. Transfer the skillet to the oven & cook for 20-25 min, until the chicken is cooked through. The pearl couscous should absorb most of the liquid. (For regular couscous, stir it in now!)

Step 7

Garnish with a squeeze of lime & thinly sliced scallions if you have! Enjoy!
