    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. For this one-skillet dish, we'll marinate our chicken in a sweet and spicy combination of honey and harissa paste, then cook it with poblano pepper, carrots, yellow couscous and more. We'll finish the dish with a drizzle of cooling lemon labneh.

    tips & techniques
    Marinate the shrimp
    1 Marinate the shrimp

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a medium bowl, combine the harissa paste, honey (kneading the packet before opening), the juice of 2 lemon wedges, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Stir to combine. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; remove the tails. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the bowl of harissa-honey mixture. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate at least 10 minutes.

    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Thoroughly wash your hands, immediately after handling.

    Start the skillet
    3 Start the skillet

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots, diced pepper, and sliced white bottoms of the scallions in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the marinated shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the shrimp are slightly opaque.

    Finish the skillet
    4 Finish the skillet

    Add the couscous, currants, and capers to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined. Add the demi-glace and 3/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, turn off the heat. Cover tightly with a lid (or foil) and let stand 6 to 8 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed, the couscous is tender, and the shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
