Instructions
  1. In a food processor, finely chop onion and garlic.
  2. Pat the chicken thighs down with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture. Dredge the chicken in flour.
  3. In a large fry pan, heat oil over medium heat. Saute chicken and onion mixture until mixture has softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in one cup water, saffron, ginger, cumin, paprika, salt and lemon peel. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, 35 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken from sauce and allow to cool a few minutes. Cut the meat into smaller more manageable pieces. Put meat back into sauce and add in the lemon juice, olives, coriander and pepper. Simmer gently 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the couscous and bring back to a boil. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Spoon chicken mixture over couscous and serve. Garnish with a little fresh coriander and slices of lemon (optional).
