Toasted Pearl Couscous with Chicken and Chickpeas
Palestinian maftoul, a pasta similar to pearl couscous, inspired this quick and easy one-pot meal. The wheaty flavor and aroma of the couscous is greatly enhanced by toasting until the seed-sized bits are richly browned before they're cooked pilaf-style. A sauté of onions, tomato paste, sumac and cinnamon creates a flavorful base for simultaneously poaching boneless chicken thighs and steaming the toasted couscous.
