Toasted Pearl Couscous with Chicken and Chickpeas (Fast & Slow)

A key step for achieving maximum flavor in this one-pot meal is to toast the pearl couscous, which deepens its wheaty flavor and yields a nutty aroma. A sauté of garlic, onion, cumin and allspice creates a heady base for simultaneously cooking boneless chicken thighs and the toasted couscous; cutting the chicken into bite-sized pieces allows everything to finish cooking at the same same time. A spoonful of tangy-sweet pomegranate molasses brightens the flavors while balancing the warm, earthy spices.

Tip

Don't use regular couscous. Pearl couscous, sometimes referred to as Israeli couscous, is much larger so it cooks differently than regular couscous and retains a satisfying chew. Also, don't slice the carrots thinner than ½ inch or they will turn to mush.
