    From the Test Kitchen

    This flavor-packed dish features our romesco sauce—a smoky, Spanish-style sauce made with almonds, roasted red peppers, tomatoes, and garlic—which we’re using to coat a mix of tender chicken, onion, and poblano pepper. It all comes together over a bed of fluffy couscous studded with currants for pops of sweet flavor.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Pit and roughly chop the olives. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling. In a large bowl, combine the sliced onion and sliced pepper.

    Cook the couscous
    2 Cook the couscous

    In a small pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the couscous, currants, a big pinch of salt, and 3/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, turn off the heat. Cover and let stand 6 to 8 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the couscous is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

    Cook the chicken & vegetables
    3 Cook the chicken & vegetables

    Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Transfer to the bowl of sliced onion and pepper. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and vegetables in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped olives. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Carefully stir in the romesco sauce until thoroughly combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
